Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 270. In South Dumfries T., Brant C., on Fairchild Cr., 14 km. NE of Brant ford. Originally known as Vroomania, after the first settler,
  • A. N. Vrooman who arrived in 1855. For a time the place was called Carstairs, but later named Harrisburg after the Harris family, one of whom was the blacksmith.
  • Harrisburg came into being as a shipping point on the Great Western Railway. The train station was located in a deep cut with no road leading to it so freight had to be lowered down a slide.
  • In the early 1850s a branch line was built to Galt. Harrisburg grew and a town site was laid out before it was discovered there was not enough water to service both a town and the locomotives.
  • The Great Western Railway moved its terminal to Hamilton. In 1882 the Grand Trunk Railway took over the line and built a new station at Harrisburg, this time with a roadway leading to it.
