Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 857. In Arran T., Bruce C., on the Sauble R. and C. Rds. 5 & 10,26 km SW of Owen Sound.
  • One of the founders of the community was Richard Berford, a member of the party that arrived to survey Arran T. in 1851. The place was first called Eblana, an ancient name for Dublin, Ireland.
  • In the late 1850s, W. A. Gerolamy built a foundry and agricultural implement works. Gerolamy introduced perforated zinc for sieves in fanning mills, and the innovation won prizes at three world fairs.
  • In 1864 the community changed its name to Tara to honour the place where Ireland's ancient kings were crowned in County Meath.
  • It was incorporated as a village in 1881. Sir William H. Hearst (1864- 1941), born near Tara, was Ontario's seventh premier 1914-1919. Frederick 'Cyclone' Taylor (1885- 1979) of Tara was one of hockey's first superstars.
  • He attracted widespread attention with his exceptional skating and scoring ability and in 1960 was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
