Crewson Ridge (Acton Ontario)
Morgan Crewson was the son of Lena Morgan and Thomas Crewson of New York. Morgan apprenticed as a blacksmith travelling through Pennsylvania to the Ohio River, and down the Mississippi to New Orleans, eventually working his way back to New York. In 1820, Morgan Crewson came to Canada to work for the Hon. William Merritt, who planned the Welland Canal. It was at that time when he met Mary Soper. Mary Soper was the daughter of a United Empire Loyalist and upon her marriage was entitled to 200 acres. She chose Lot I Concession I of Erin on the first day of her marriage to Morgan Crewson. This area was then given the name Morgantown. The Crewsons built a log home on the west side of the property near a little creek.
A decade later in 1832 the Crewsons moved into a stone house built by Morgan Crewson - the first stone house built in Erin. Shortly thereafter Morgan began construction of a large stone barn. It was completed in 1847 after 10 years of work. By then Mary and Morgan had raised 8 children.
In 1850, the Grand Trunk Railway proposed a rail line running west from Acton to Rockwood. It is said that the Railway had requested land from Morgan Crewson on which to build a railway station. Morgan refused permission and the station was built in Acton instead. Crewsons Corners developed as a cross-roads community and around the mid-1800s had an inn, a saw mill, a shingle mill, a blacksmith shop and a church.
In 2004, The town of Erin designated the Crewson barn a heritage site. Thomasfield Homes then took the opportunity to completely renovate the old stone barn and preserve the local legacy of Crewson's Corners.
