History:
This section of land beside the Grand River was granted to
Adam Young and his family for their loyalty to the Crown during
the American Revolution. Adam and his son's John, Daniel and
Henry fought with the Butler’s Rangers and Mohawk Chief
Joseph Brant in defending Canada. Upon this tract of land,
eldest son John Young was the first white settler to start a new life postwar in 1783. The family has erected a plaque to commemorate this history and has requested formal designation under the Ontario Heritage Act.
