Flesherton, Ontario -- The Gateway to Beaver Valley


     The village of Flesherton (population 700), often referred to as "the Gateway to Beaver Valley", is beautifully set in the rural countryside and sits at the crossroads of Highway 10 and Grey County Road #4 in the Municipality of Grey Highlands.  In addition to Grey Highlands Secondary School and MacPhail Memorial Elementary School (which was beautifully rebuilt in 2006 and abuts Flesherton Hills, a 100 acre wooded walking trail), the village includes an arena, post office, brand new library (2011), the South Grey Museum, a Canadian Legion hall, 2 churches and various small parks and walking trails.  Charming shops include a bakery, cheese and produce markets, hardware and plumbing supply stores, real estate offices, auto sales and service businesses, a funeral home and a bank, as well as popular restaurants and the Inn at Munshaw House. Flesherton also boasts a thriving artistic commuity, including various artists' studios and galleries which are regularly opened to the public.  The Farmers' Market, held at the arena each Saturday morning from May through October, and nearby scenic attractions such as Eugenia Falls, the Saugeen and Boyne Rivers and sections of the Bruce Trail, never fail to please.  

 

     Village history can be traced back to the mid-nineteenth century, when an influx of Scottish and Irish immigrants arrived to begin hard, new lives around this mill town on the Boyne River.  One of the first was William Kingston Flesher, who was responsible for much of the initial development of the valley economy, building a saw mill and grist mill on the Boyne River and going on to act at various times as post-master, magistrate, druggist, doctor, county warden, village reeve, captain of the local militia, and in 1872 as MP, when Flesher was elected to the House of Commons for the riding of Grey East.  The village now bears his name in recognition of his outstanding service to the community.

 

     Notable residents and former residents include Agnes MacPhail, the first woman elected to the House of Commons, who served as MP for the area for more than a decade; Oliver Schroer, an award winning fiddler and recording artist; Matt Galloway, CBC radio host; Chris Neil, NHL hockey player and local hero, currently playing for the Ottawa Senators.
