7. Photocopy of an article in CanadiAntiquer, August 1976, entitled “Auction sale at 19th century stopping place”, by Brenda Lee-Whiting. This auction took place at the “Box House” in White Lake. Many of the items sold had originally belonged to the Laird of McNab, his son Alan McNab and his wife Rebecca nee Buffam who (after Allan McNab’s early death) married Jack Alston. The Alstons operated a hotel in this house. Their daughter Violet married Alexander Box — hence the name “Box House”. Owen Black of White Lake was the executor of the (Box) estate, Revel Stewart the auctioneer. The article mainly lists the antique items and says nothing about the fact that the house was actually built by Archibald McNab’s son Allan.
