Waterloo, Ontario, Canada: Old Troll House

Small rustic building set in the trees next to a country road with a whimsical sloping roof. Seems to be designed either as a house for large trolls or giant birds.

Old Troll House

There is a small, crooked-roof troll house on the side of the country roadway. It's been here a long time, is very well built, and is a very unusual sight in this area.

[Ian Sanderson, 05/12/2022]

Although the whimsical rustic architecture is troll-suggestive, circular holes in the front of the building suggest that it might in fact be a house for giant birds. June 2024: Photo added.
