  • The community, fIrst known as The Branch, (after the South Branch of the Rideau R.), then became known as Clothier Mills.

  • The Hon. G. Howard Ferguson (1870-1946), born here, was Ontario's ninth premier, 1923-1930, and later served as Canadian high commissioner to the UK.
  • In the early 1930s a 43-km plank road was built to connect Kemptville with steamship traffic landing at Prescott on the St. Lawrence R.
