Fergus, Ontario


Welcome to Fergus, a historic town in Ontario Canada. Formerly known as "Little Falls", it is now part of the Township of Centre Wellington, along with Elora and Belwood.

Following an ancient native path upstream from Elora, Adam Fergusson and James Webster first laid eyes on "Little Falls", the future site of Fergus in 1833. Excited by the prospect of fertile farmland, and not only one mill site, but two along that stretch of the Grand River, their decision was made. They purchased 7400 acres and the little Scottish hamlet was born.

"Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. For those few months, you're not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don't have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. Summer just opens the door and lets you out."
Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart
