History Of Grey Highlands

The history of Grey Highlands can be traced back to the arrival of the first European settlers in the region in the early 19th century. The area was initially settled by Scottish, Irish, and English immigrants, who were attracted to the region's fertile land and abundant natural resources. The municipality was formed in 2001 through the amalgamation of the towns of Flesherton, Markdale, and the villages of Artemesia, Kimberley, and Osprey.

The area's economy was initially based on agriculture, with the main crops being wheat, barley, and oats. The region also had a thriving timber industry, with several sawmills and lumber camps operating in the area.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, tourism began to play a significant role in the region's economy, with the arrival of the railway in the area making it more accessible to visitors. The region's natural beauty, including its rolling hills, forests, and rivers, made it a popular destination for hunting, fishing, and hiking.

The municipality continued to grow and develop throughout the 20th century, with the construction of several new schools, churches, and other community facilities. In recent years, the municipality has been working to promote sustainable economic development and to preserve its natural and cultural heritage.

Today, Grey Highlands is known for its picturesque landscapes, recreational opportunities, and a strong sense of community. The economy is mainly based on agriculture and tourism, but also on some small and medium-sized industries and craftsmanship.
