Description From Owner:
- Pop. 147. In Oro T., Simcoe C. on C. Rd. 20, 21 km. NE of Barrie. The T. was surveyed in 1811 by S. J. Wilmot and was originally conceived as a settlement for black slaves fleeing the United States.
- The name was chosen after the Rio Del Oro (River of Gold), a river and settlement in Africa.
- The settlement plan was soon discontinued as many of the families found the weather too harsh and moved to warmer climes. See also Barrie and Lucan.
