Durham, Ontario

 

 

Durham is a community in the municipality of West GreyGrey County,OntarioCanada. Durham is located near the base of the Bruce Peninsula.

Durham, Ontario is 44 kilometres South of Owen Sound and 89 kilometres North of Guelph on Ontario Highway 6. The middle of the town is the intersection of Highway 6 and Grey Road 4. Durham is approximately 18 kilometres east of Hanover.

The population of Durham has stayed steady at roughly 2500 people over the past decade. This compares to neighbour Hanover which has grown from 6,400 to 8,200 people in the past decade.

Durham is built around the Saugeen River and has three man-made dams. These dams have suffered at least two major floods, once in 1929 when the dam broke and again in 1997 due to ice blockage. Durham also used to be the centre of the livestock exchange for the surrounding Grey and Brucecounties, which it lays close to the border of. On the outskirts of Durham, there are several small communities, such as VarneyDornochAberdeen,Allan ParkPriceville and Holstein.

 

 

 

 

Foundations of Durham

 

 

 


Founded on May 1, 1842 by Archibald Hunter, a Scottish traveller, Durham became one of the first ever self-sustaining communities in Canada through the flour and saw mills of an Irishman named John Edge, founded in the 1840s. Those mills were purchased by Robert McGowan in 1888, hence the Durham landmark McGowan Falls on the Saugeen River. Durham now has two major companies for employment: Durham Furniture and Interforest. Durham Furniture is a company that specializes in stained and whitewashedbedroom furniture and employs slightly more than 200 people. Interforest is a multinational corporation that deals with the treatment and production oflumber.

Durham has its own hospital with limited emergency facilities, although it was once a full blown community hospital equipped to handle most situations. The town is patrolled by the municipality's West Grey Police, and the town does have its own police station. Also, Durham has its own volunteerfirefighter service and station. The town has its own Canada Post building, as well as a town hall. The town also has a Conservation Area with camp sites that are very popular during the summertime and help expand local business.
