Hespeler's Oldest Home is for Sale - 168 Bechtel Street

168 Bechtel - Samuel Bechtel Homestead - 1816   It is no secret that the City of Cambridge had done little to designate or protect buildings in Hespeler. The removal of a complete historical block at 2-10 Queen Street clearly demonstrates how easy it is to wipe out a century of history.
