Today, Dave was telling us stories about the old barn, the old staff housing and an old cave that a man lived in for many years. So tonight, we went and explored all the locations. We found a chair in the barn, that Brad claimed, and lots of cool stuff at the dig site...I mean cave site. Here is the cave story..Interesting story, from the 1950s - early 1970s, there was a blacksmith by the name of Jack Webster who worked at the Skyline stables. In the summer, he lived into a lean-to built up against one of the sheds. In the winter, he moved up the hill behind the barn into a kinda of cave he dug up there. There was a main room plus a couple of small rooms dug out underground. The main room wasn't a cave, just a hole in the ground with a tin roof over it at ground level. Apparently he stunk really bad and was a vegetarian. He finished his career at the horse stables at Maligne Lake.
