576 Bradley Road – 1852. Thomas Powell, of English descent, came from New York in 1830. He met and married Sophia, the daughter of William and Elizabeth Saddler, in 1832 when he was 29 and she was 18. His good-sized farm was well south of the lakeshore. The same cedar trees that stood next to the frame house are in the front yard today. The Powell family still lived in the home next door until the late 1970s.
