Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 1,165. In Aldborough T., Elgin C., onC. Rds. 103& 104, 56 kIn SW of St. Thomas. The first settler and founder was William Hoskins, a weaver from England who came to the township in 1854.
  • Hoskins built a home, in error, on the wrong lot (the 7th Concession, rather than the 6th); so he had to build another house for his family.
  • The community was first known as Centreville, but when the post office was established in 1865 it was named Rodney after Admiral Sir George Brydges Rodney of the British Navy who had distinguished himself in the Seven Years' War.
  • Rodney claims to have the smallest jail in North America. It was reopened by their tourist commission in 1995 after it had been closed for half a century.
  • The two-cell, 270 square foot (24.3 m) hoosegow was built in 1890 and 'out-minis' prior claimants Port Dalhousie, Tweed and Coboconk.
