Ontario Wedding Resources (more information)

The first settler arrived in 1806. The first settler was Freeman Hopkins. He built a small log cabin that had to hold his nine children, wife and himself. Heavy timber and swamps made life difficult for the first settlers.

The Town of Ontario was created in 1807 as the "Town of Freetown" from a part of the Town of Williamson. Soon after, the name was changed to Ontario. Part of Ontario was used to form the Town of Walworth in 1829.

In 1811 iron ore was discovered and a thriving smelting operation arose that lasted until past the end of the century.

In 1874, the Lake Ontario Shore Railroad (now the R., W. & O.) was opened.
