Owen Sound

The Port City

Book - 2000
Rate this:

The beginning of Owen Sound can be traced to the 1840 historical meeting, in a small forest clearing, between surveyor Charles Rankin and land agent John Telfer. Owen Sound: The Port City begins with the Native Peoples of the area and moves through pioneer settlement to the creation of a city in this more northerly area of central Ontario. The influence of Georgian Bay and the beginning of marine commerce, combined with the coming of the railway, led to rapid industrial growth. The memorable stories of interesting personalities, determined entrepreneurs and local rivalries create a compelling look at Owen Sound both past and present. For the citizens of Owen Sound, adversity became a challenge to be overcome and transformed into prosperity.
