Description From Owner:
- Pop. 243. Part of the Town of Newcastle in the Reg. Mun. of Durham on C. Rds. 4 & 34, 15 km NW of Bowmanville.
- The community was first known as Pilchardton, Pilchardtown, Pelchardtown, and Toole's Corners.
- In 1869, when the post office was being established, teacher John Hughes, who disliked the name Pilchardtown, invited some young men to make a pronounceable name from the consonants L, N, and S and the vowels A, I, and O.
- A ballot was taken to determine the most popular name and Solina won. The community went along with the choice.
