Ontario Tourism Region : Bruce Peninsula, Southern Georgian Bay and Lake Simcoe

Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 2,994. In Saugeen T., Bruce C., on L. Huron at the mouth of the Saugeen R. and Hwy 21 and C. Rd. 13,38 km SW of Owen Sound.
  • The town's history dates to 1652, when a peace treaty, later broken, was signed between the Iroquois and Ojibwa. Nearby Saugeen Indian Reserve is the home of descendants of the Ojibwa and their allies.
  • The town plot was surveyed in 1851, and the same year a post office called Saugeen was opened. The name is Ojibwa for 'mouth of the river.'
  • The last extensive transfer of First Nations Peoples lands in southern Ontario took place in 1854 when most of the Bruce Peninsula was surrendered to the Crown by the Saugeen and Newash bands of Ojibwa.
  • The Hon. James Harvey Price, commissioner of Crown lands, named the place Southampton, in 1890, after his seaport hometown in England.
  • The first settlers were Capt. John Spence and Capt. William Kennedy, former Hudson's Bay Company employees, who engaged in commercial fIshing and fur trading with the First Nations Peoples.
