    Default Ghost Town(?) Quorn in Ontario

    I'm wondering if anyone knows of an old railroad town named 'Quorn' in Northern Ontario (NW of Thunder Bay). It would have been perhaps 15 km north of English River. And if you search Google for Quorn Lake you can find it (very circular lake) right where my old maps show Quorn.

    It is interesting for me since my Mother grew up in Quorn, England and when they were children their atlas showed the town of Quorn in Ontario(!). I can't imagine it was ever very big, and would be interested to know if anyone has any information on it. I last saw it on an Ontario road map from around 1980, but on a 1984 (I think it was) map it was no longer there.

    Just for fun, I attach a scan of the old atlas page showing Quorn (towards the upper-left...circled). Note that at the time of this atlas, Thunder Bay was still Fort William and Port Arthur.

    Who knows, there may be many other ghost towns along those railroads!
    Thank you for any information you may have.
