On a warm spring day in May, 1859; the settlement then known as Orwell Rear, (present day Lyndale) was left shocked and saddened by the brutal murder 40 year old Annie Beaton.

Globin’s ghost
near the Scottish set-tlement
of Lyndale on Queen’s Road
can give you a real fright
if you happen to
stumble upon
Anne Beaton’s
murder site
in the dark
of the night.
