Summers By the Lake: The History of Grimsby Park

Creator(s): Grimsby Museum

Not long after United Empire Loyalists from New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey settled in Grimsby, Ontario in 1787, travelling preachers known as circuit riders began providing spiritual support to the community's many Methodist settlers. The time was the early 1800s and it is to this era that the origins of Grimsby Park can be traced.
