some pictures of the new dump site I recently found , you can see its mostly wooded ( maple trees ) and very steep . starts off as a small drive way off the main road and goes up the hill

eventually is a trail area which leads along the edge of the dump and you can start to see metal items such as fridges, stoves and eventually by the end is even more metal items in a big pile of junk

Looks like there could be some potential there. I bet there is an old area, maybe 1930-1940s somewhere there.

I'm short of any records for this dump , but I have some maps from the 60's - 70's which show the area and none show the dump . but I did notice the number of cottages on the nearby lake surged during that time

on the 60's map is only a few but by the 70's was a dozen along the nearby waterfront area

so might explain why the area needed a dump around that time and why it was so busy

haven't found anything that old there , in the spring when looking for this dump did find a small dumping from the 30's in the woods but on other side of the highway

on the weekend I drove down south a bit and poked around a few spots . I randomly found a small dumping along a dirt road/wooded area off a small highway . looks like someone else dug it years ago based on the ground and lack of many whole bottles

several broken pieces from various corked bottles , clear , aqua and light purple in colour . some broken glass jars , beer / liquor bottles

some broken china / plates with colour

couple small non broken bottles , amber bottle , clear druggist no embossing and a small neat clear corked bottle

broken shard for a " Hooflands Consumption Cure " never heard of it before
