- Huron County native Barnard Fagan named this place in 1878 when he called to friends from a hilltop that he was seeing the 'golden valley ablaze with the golden colours of autunm.'
- When the post office opened in 1888 the community was given the name Golden Valley. One of Ontario's largest herds of whitetail deer winters in the Loring- Restoule area near here.
- To combat the hazards of deep snow and aggressive predators, a partnership has been established between hunt clubs, tourist associations and the Ministry of Natural Resources to provide feed lots for the deer.
- An enclosed, unheated platform offers a vantage point from which to view the deer January through March.
