I thought it might be an idea to to see whatever happened to that beautiful and wondrous place known as 'Miniature Village'. It was a place where little people lived together in a tiny village where everyone seemed to be so happy.
Even as an adult I was lost in the imaginative world of the miniature people, so I can imagine how it must have been for children.

Mind you, Cullen Gardens was in the business of selling flora, shrubs, and landscaping services; therefore their business was on display as well as their gardens. The town of Whitby does not have the same purpose.

|The Lynde House - circa 1812|
It appears, much to the dismay of the locals, they have bought 3 hectares of land located on the 34 hectare property formerly owned by the Cullens. There are still 31 hectares of property left remaining. The good news (to me) is that the current buildings will be utilized again. I would have preferred to see it as a historical site, but apparently they are transporting a few of the older buildings to a museum site (ie the Lynde house and the log cabin). This is a great scenario. The spa will open all year with two restaurants and a retail boutique, all within existing dwellings. This isn't my cup of tea, but at least the area will come alive again with a new generation of people to enjoy its surroundings.
Just like yesterday's memories, we found it nostalgic that someone had stuck a poppy in the wooded bridge, so I took a picture of it to say I remember too.
