History

The area around the township was first settled in by the Irish, English and Scots in the 1830s. The township was incorporated in 1851 meaning the town is now more than 160 years old. The township was originally agricultural with the fertile land mostly producing potatoes and other fine crops before gradually moving to a weekend retreat hub.
