      There are still a few remnants of Semora-past. One is the home of Michael and Janice Owen Wall on Highway 119. The house was built in 1897, purchased in 1932 by Colonel Jasper Owen, Sr., and his wife, Ruby, having now been passed down through three generations.

      Colonel Owen and his wife built a Tea Room and Boarding House on the nearby corner lot, later a store, torn down in the 1970s. The building would have been an impressively sized structure in Dutch style. While the Boarding House no longer exists, Michael and Janice are fortunate to have the original architectural drawings.

      Janice reminisces, "I can remember my granny telling the story of boarding the men that first paved the road from Milton to Semora."
