This week, we explore Markdale.

Did you know…

Markdale was originally called Cornabuss. The first resident arrived in 1849.

Markdale got its current name from Mark Armstrong Sr., who donated land and other bonuses to entice the Grey and Bruce Railway to stop there. The tracks reached the town in 1872.

The Chamber has a walking tour of Markdale that you can pick up from our Office, and from various tourism ambassadors around the municipality, including Highland Grounds in Flesherton and The Market Shoppe and Brilliant Bread in Markdale.
