Fergus, Ontario


Welcome to Fergus, a historic town in Ontario Canada. Formerly known as "Little Falls", it is now part of the Township of Centre Wellington, along with Elora and Belwood.

Following an ancient native path upstream from Elora, Adam Fergusson and James Webster first laid eyes on "Little Falls", the future site of Fergus in 1833. Excited by the prospect of fertile farmland, and not only one mill site, but two along that stretch of the Grand River, their decision was made. They purchased 7400 acres and the little Scottish hamlet was born.
