Pronunciation 

 

 


The town's name is an aboriginal name which means "town on two rivers". The town's name rhymes with the place nameCataraqui, which appears in the Cataraqui River, the Little Cataraqui Creek, and the Cataraqui Cemetery in nearby Kingston, Ontario. One way to remember its pronunciation is "The right way, the wrong way, and the Gananoque". In eastern Ontario speech, the town name is often abbreviated to Gan.

 

 

 

 

 

History

 

 

 

Colonel Joel Stone, who served withLoyalist militia during the American Revolutionary War, established a settlement on this site in 1789. Land was granted to Col. Stone for use as a mill site.

During the War of 1812, Americanforces raided the government depot in the town to disrupt the flow of British supplies between Kingston and Montreal. The stores seized consisted of half an ox, a few straw ticks, and a few blankets. The raiders seized the supplies they found and burned the depot.

Mrs. Stone reportedly protected her jewels from the invaders by hiding them in the flour at the mill.

Within a month of the raid construction of the Gananoque Blockhouse was started, with completion in 1813. It had anoctagonal log parapet containing five guns. The blockhouse was abandoned after the War of 1812 and given to a private landowner.
