Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 204. In Camden T., Lennox & Addington Cs., on the Napanee R. and C. Rds. 5 and 6, 26 km NW of Kingston: The settlement was first known as Peters' Mills after Eli Peters who built a sawmill here in the early 1800s.
  • The founder of the village, however, was Charles Warner who built the first store, bought and expanded Peters' mill, laid out a townsite and petitioned the government for a post office.
  • When the post office opened, the communIty s name changed to Colebrook. One explanation for the name is that the post office was located in the store of Cole Warner; the other is that the place was named after Sir William MacBean George Colebrook
  • lieutenant-governor of New Brunswick during the 1840s.
  • Early industries included a company that produced wooden eavestroughs, and a 'feather renovating factory' that removed feathers from mattresses pillows and ticks, cleaned and fluffed them up and returned them to the covers.
  • Everett Shangraw operated a factory producing penetrating oil he marketed under the trade name 'Casite.'
