RCAF Station Edgar / CFS Edgar

RCAF Station Edgar / CFS Edgar was built in 1953 as part of the Pinetree Line radar defence network; as both a Ground-Control Intercept station and an Early Warning Detection station.  It was sold to the Province of Ontario and turned into the Edgar Adult Occupational Centre, which closed in 1999.    Latest reports suggest that a developer bought the land in 2011 for $2500, has leveled all the buildings, and will build 82 houses on the site.  

When I eventually visit I expect I'll be severely disappointed with what I see at the site.
