The Founding of Owen Sound Heritage Plaque

At the northern terminus of the Garafraxa Road on the shores of Owen Sound, a town plot was laid out in 1840 to encourage settlement in that part of the county. Originally called Sydenham, the settlement took the name of its adjacent body of water in 1857 when, with 2 000 residents, it was incorporated as the Town of Owen Sound. Located on the grounds of the city hall, 808 Second Avenue East, Owen Sound.
