Miner's Haven - Dwyn-Anne Appleton - across the street, is there a little pinkish sort of house that was done up as a B&B a few years ago? In 2006, I rented a house for a week while travelling to Drum for my grandmother's 90th birthday. I'm sure it was across the street from Miner's Haven and owned by the same lady. To the family's surprise - It turned out my little pink house was my great-grandmother's house at one time - Mrs. Annabel Carruthers. I don't remember her, I was only 3 in 1966 when she passed away - but my mom, Darlene Caron remembered almost every detail in the house. If it's the same house, do you own that one too?
Was Annabelle any relation to Peggy Carruthers? The little pink house still stands across the street I am not too sure who own it now there is amazing history in this street

Annabel was her mother-in-law. Peggy was my grandmother, and her husband (my grandfather) was Floyd Carruthers. Floyd's mom was Annabel. When we were there, my mom took me out the back, and down the alley a bit, describing church going trips with her Gramma Annabel. it was a very eerie experience having rented my great-grandmother's house and not having known it. I'm so glad it happened though!
Peggy was a good friend if my mom Merna Appleton I remember she was a fabulous baker, my first experience with nanimo bars were from her kitchen. Peggy and Floyd lived over a block from central school

Yep, they were in a little green house on 4th Street (I think). I think it was covered over with grey aluminum siding the last time I was there. I'm sure I've met your mom - the name sounds very familiar. I spent every summer of my childhood in Drum, and thus was often entertained by gramma's hairdressing clients and tea friends! And yes, she made the best nanaimo bars!
The coffee gang lol I remember them well
