Imagine yourself looking over the Elgin area in the early 1800s- unbroken forest, mountains and rolling hills with valleys in between rivers, streams and falls. The land provides game for food, rivers for fish, and trees for wood to build and perhaps later for a mill, with a canopy of beautiful colours in the fall. It is the land of opportunity! Many days and weeks of labour? Yes, but owning a piece of land is a dream come true for the hardy early settlers.
