The History of Huron County Tell them Tiger sent you...

Ontario’s West Coast is more than a lakeside playground. Yes, it is true visitors return to this coastal region to revel in Huron County’s beautiful beaches, shop in its charming businesses, commune with nature, get active in recreation and pamper themselves with fine dining and accommodation. But it’s also true Ontario’s West Coast is the perfect location to travel back in time, visit some of Canada’s most fascinating historical sites and behold authentic mid-nineteenth century architecture. Find out what all the fuss is about. Take a trek to the newly-restored tomb of colourful historical figure Dr. William ‘Tiger’ Dunlop. Visit the 1842 Huron Historic Gaol, site of Canada’s last public hanging (recounted in John Melady’s book, Double Trap: The Last Public Hanging in Canada). Walk through the doors of rebel history in Egmondville’s Van Egmond House. Visit Goderich’s Square (is it a Square, Octagon, or Circle?), a rare architectural innovation successfully transplanting from ancient Rome to a modern urban centre. Visit the fascinating museums of Ontario’s West Coast, including Huron County Museum, one of the province’s finest small museums. School children know it as the site of the two-headed calf, but beautiful exhibitions there offer so much more. Ontario’s West Coast is waiting to be discovered by the heritage enthusiast uncovering tales of early Ontario settlement or the military historian investigating the origins of radar or Second World War flight training bases. Yes, this region is a shoreline playground. But, when you’re not taking in a breathtaking sunset or the relaxing sound of waves lapping onto shore, why not enjoy an historical adventure. The adventure starts here . . . The French bestowed the name ‘Huron’ to the ‘Ouendat’ First Nations people in the upper end of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay, recounts James Scott in The Settlement of Huron County. The tract of land where Huron County is located, however, belonged to the Mohawk and Chippewa First Nations and, before them, the Attawandarons (called ‘Neutrals’ by the French). The first European to reach this area may have been controversial Étienne Brûlé, a courier de bois and servant of Samuel de Champlain. Hollywood should put this man’s story on film. Brûlé lived with the Hurons, learned their language and transformed himself into a member of the aboriginal culture. He eventually alienated de Champlain, the Iroquois and even the Hurons, who reportedly killed him for transgressions the history books still debate.

The French contributed a fascinating figure to the region but other rich historical personages came from Scotland, namely Dr. William ‘Tiger’ Dunlop and John Galt. ‘Tiger’ Dunlop was the Scottish writer, land developer, politician, surgeon, rebel and scallywag who regularly carried twelve large glass jars he nicknamed the ‘Twelve Apostles.’ Eleven were filled with whiskey and the twelfth (‘Judas’) was filled with water. Scottish novelist and land developer John Galt is a key character in the new book, ‘The Canada Company and the Huron Tract, 1826-1853: Personalities, Profits and Politics.’ Robert C. Lee’s book fuels a fiery debate that still rages over Galt’s place in history. Galt was a peer of Lord Byron and Sir Walter Scott. He wrote significant novels set in Scotland and Canada – but he claimed his greatest success was as Superintendent of the Canada Company, the land development enterprise that opened this area for settlement. Galt co-founded Goderich and Guelph but was fired by the company he started within three years of coming to Canada. (Galt’s son, Sir Alexander Tilloch Galt, was a Canadian Father of Confederation). Today, visitors can see the realization of Galt’s vision by walking the scenic Square of Goderich or by travelling the Huron Tract from ‘Shakespeare to the Shoreline.’ We could tell tales of other fascinating Huron characters such as Col. Anthony Van Egmond, the wealthy noble turned rebel who died in jail after leading William Lyon Mackenzie’s 1837 Rebellion, or Thomas Mercer Jones, who earned favour with the Family Compact by marrying Archdeacon Strachan’s daughter. But, we want you to do the discovering. Huron’s 840,000 acres of land form Ontario’s most agriculturallyproductive county – rivalling the output of some provinces! – and a significant centre of technology and industry. It is also a tourist destination with endless attractions. The history of Huron County isn’t hidden away in dusty old books. Experience the drama at Huron’s world-class museums, historic Gaol, through theatrical performances or an excursion down Huron’s streets. Or, take part in ‘Doors Open Ontario’ where doors that are normally closed will swing open for you . . . Come join the West Coast adventure . . . tell them that Tiger sent you . . .

Museums and Attractions

Discover Huron County’s diverse heritage sites.

Come and celebrate history at Huron County’s impressive museum and historic gaol as well as sampling the stories told by local community museums, archives, galleries and stops along the way. There are wildlife areas and an arboretum, a tiny zoo and racetracks with horsepower of both kinds! Memorial parks and historic bridges take you off the beaten track to encounter a different pace and space that will please every member of your family. Colourful and memorable museum experiences include live radio shows, celebrated Canadian writers, one-room schools on solid foundations as well as rail tracks, renowned photographers and marine history in Huron County. Collections and keepsakes, mementos and cultural traditions – our museums hold the key to the past, with rooms hosting items that will trigger memories or more questions than answers – good exercise for the brain! Museums ask us to remember and appreciate our local history and experiences as well as bring the world to our doors with special travelling exhibits.

Museums and special attractions are ideal for family outings, from hands-on experiments with old tools to collections that evoke vivid memories and tales of life not-so-long-ago too. Huron County’s attractions offer an amazing array of choices – from racing with maximum horsepower to racing with horses! Both racetracks will provide plenty of excitement whether you’re betting or not. Wildlife areas and nature centres provide a backdrop of lush marsh and greenery where enthusiasts can view wildlife species, hike, canoe and even hunt. There’s a collection of sculptures set among the trees, with nearby bountiful orchard and farm shops too. With marine heritage walkways and historic walks around the towns, there’s plenty to do to keep everyone moving. If searching through archives is an appealing preoccupation then Huron County’s archives will satisfy the treasure hunters: Bayfield’s Archives Room, St. Joseph’s area archives along with the County’s Museum will provide great venues for the family historian.

VAN EGMOND HOUSE/FOUNDATION, was built by Constant Van Egmond and his wife Ann Johnston. This Georgian manor is one of the oldest houses in Huron County, and served as the nucleus for the growth of the Village of Egmondville. The Van Egmond family played a fundamental role in the opening of the Huron Tract, a one-million acre parcel of land owned by the Canada Company. Colonel Van Egmond was involved with the VAN EGMOND Rebellion of 1837 in an attempt to bring responsible HOUSE government to the area. He died untried in the Don jail, Toronto. Today, the Van Egmond House is preserved to its original splendour to provide a glimpse of life in the mid-nineteenth century. The House is located in the Van Egmond Reserve overlooking the beautiful Bayfield River (corner of Kippen Road and Bayfield Road). The Van Egmond Foundation hosts the annual Spring Breakfast, Country Breakfast and Ciderfest.

ST. JOSEPH MEMORIAL PARK, and Historical Walkway tell the history of St. Joseph through narrative and pictorial signage. The Park began with a request from St. André, known healer and founder of the famed Oratory of St. Joseph in Montreal. He requested that a statue honouring St. Joseph be placed in the Park. It was the early 1900’s when he took a metal pipe and pounded ST. JOSEPH it into the ground where the statue now stands. The MEMORIAL statue was placed in the Park in 1972. A Provincial Plaque was also erected in St. Joseph Memorial Park PARK honouring Narcisse Cantin (1870-1940). Narcisse had a dream to build a Great Lakes canal system, which included a canal that would have started at St. Joseph and linked Lake Huron and Lake Erie. Although this canal was never built, many others were and he has been referred to as the “Father of the St. Lawrence Seaway”. We invite you to visit St. Joseph, the city that never was. Read the many fascinating stories in the park. Located on Hwy. #21 at Cty. Rd. #84.

BALL’S BRIDGE, - THE BRIDGE THAT LOVE BUILT Ball’s Bridge was built in 1885 when a smitten engineer, working on the bridge at the mouth of the Maitland in Goderich, fell in love with one of the Ball daughters. He built Ball’s Bridge so that she would no longer have to get her feet wet when crossing the Maitland River near her home. Ball’s Bridge has been a part of the Maitland River landscape for over 125 years! Ball’s Bridge appears to retain an excellent degree of historic integrity. BALLS Ball’s Bridge, as a two span structure, is exceptionally BRIDGE rare, and stands out as a significant example among Ontario’s remaining pin connected truss bridges. Even the construction of the bridge back in 1885 resulted in a marriage between the bridge engineer and a member of the Ball family. Take a drive over this bridge and witness its tranquillity. Located 4.5 km south of Auburn on Little Lakes Rd. Just west of Baseline Road (County Rd. #8). Follow the signs.

about the settling of the county with waves of immigrants seeking a better life for their families, with the promise of prosperity for their businesses too. From Scotland, Ireland, England, Holland, Switzerland and Germany as well as the United States, families and individuals found their way across the Huron Tract along pathways and corduroy roads. Establishing homes and businesses at crossroads that would become busy communities, these immigrants struggled to clear land, build farms and raise families. Today Huron County’s communities have a proud heritage of agriculture and industry and welcome visitors to savour this hard won history of success.

Heritage Walking Tours BAYFIELD Guided tours are held every Sat. at 10 am during July and August starting from the Archives Room at 20 Bayfield Main St. Includes Bayfield’s heritage district, tree-lined streets, and harbour views. A new self-guided booklet is also available. Lake Huron has played a vital role in the history of Bayfield. In 1832, Baron van Tuyll van Serooskerken, a Dutch nobleman, purchased large holdings in the Huron Tract including 388 acres at the mouth of the Bayfield River for a settlement. The hamlet developed first as an agricultural supply centre. In the 1840’s Bayfield was a busy shipping port for the export of grain. After rail arrived in the 1860’s, the town became a fishing centre. As the community prospered, hotels, stores and many fine residences were built. Many remain. For more information visit: www.bayfieldhistorical.ca For tour or archive information call 519-440-6206 E-mail: bayarchives@tcc.on.ca 20 Main St. P.o.

Twenty-eight blocks make up 6 kilometers of compact streetscape for this shopping, business, civic, arts and entertainment hub. Explore the boardwalk and port’s marine past and present by following the “Marine Heritage Walking Tour.”

BRUSSELS Although Brussels officially became a village in 1872, it began as the village of Ainleyville in 1855. William Ainlay, a surveyor for the Canada Company, first came to the area in 1852 and felt the waterpower provided by the Maitland River and the rich, deep, untouched soil beneath the canopy of trees made the site a good one. The village of Ainleyville, so named after Ainlay, but misspelled by the recording clerk, began in the southeast part of the present day village. Brussels soon grew into a prosperous community with its own railway station, many local industries, several churches and community groups, and a main street of fine brick blocks. Many of the commercial blocks, which presently line its main thoroughfare, Turnberry Street, were constructed after more than one devastating fire swept through the village.

Marinas and Public Beaches

It’s a shore thing...

There is no match to the feeling of being at the beach and on the water. And there’s almost no match to the Lake Huron shoreline, stretching to the horizon north and south of just where you’re standing. Every season of the year there’s a reason to come to the shoreline. Plunge in, float your boat, tie up at the docks or marinas – stay and bask in the sun, savour the quite pace of the sunset and wake to the colours of the sunrise that tint the sky and clouds above the bluffs along the shore. Marina services and shoreline communities provide a warm welcome and safe harbour to boaters and

beach-goers. We know it’s a shore thing…and Huron County treasures the golden sands and ever-changing colours of Lake Huron. Make a note to take time to come in fall and winter too since the shoreline is just as fascinating when the water pounds the shoreline with waves that create ice sculptures as the winter weather sets in. Sunsets and sand, picnics and parties, the beaches of Lake Huron and Huron County beckon you to return regularly, every season of the year.
