Effect of Quakers on the Development of Newmarket
Elman W. Campbell Museum
Newmarket , Ontario


while other Quaker families
moved on to the remaining
land at what is now the
junction with Highway 9. The
Quakers were given two years
to clear and fence 10 acres
and build their homes, each a
16 by 20 foot log house with
a shingled roof. In addition,
each Quaker family was

expected to clear 35 feet in
front of their property, half
of which was designated as a
public road-Yonge Street.
