Ontario Tourism Region : The Great Waterway

Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 938. In Yonge and Escott Ts., Leeds and Grenville Cs., on C. Rds. 5,40 & 42, 25 km. W of Brockville.
  • The first settler was John Dixon in 1784, and the settlement was called Dixon's Corner until the post office opened in 1836 as Farmersville.
  • One of the first agricultural exhibitions in Ontario was held here, and it was the site of one of the fIrst sanatoria in the province.
  • In 1888 prosperous merchant Arza Parish suggested the name Athens because, like its namesake in Greece, the town had become an educational centre.
  • It had a grammar school in 1860, a model school in 1877, and a high school in 1888. Since 1986 the town has invited artists to create large murals on the outside walls of buildings as a tourist attraction.
