Kingsville, Canadas most southern Town, is situated along the north shore of Lake Erie . Known for its favourable climate and productive soils, the Kingsville-Gosfield area was referred to as Canada s Paradise Garden by 19th century writers.
First known as the Township of Gosfield , the community was settled by United Empire Loyalists of primarily German ancestry along the shore of Lake Erie and by British immigrants along the Talbot Trail. Early residents depended upon the selling of agricultural goods and natural resources for their livelihood. Nineteen small hamlets, including Arner, North Ridge, Olinda and Albertville, developed throughout the Township to service the needs of nearby residents. Three larger centres known as Cottam, Ruthven and Kingsville, provided more specialized goods and services, transportation systems, and industries.
By the late 19th century, Kingsville had become a popular summer playground for Canadian and American tourists. They flocked to Paradise Grove, a beautiful wooded grove along the banks of Mill Creek and the shore of Lake Erie , for picnics, revival meetings, and reunions.
Three well-known men were influential in shaping the Town. James King, the communitys founder, gave Kingsville its name, while Hiram Walker capitalized on its tourism potential by building the famous Mettawas Hotel in 1889. Walker also built a railway line, known as the L.E.E. & D.R.R., from Windsor to Kingsville in 1888.
Jack Miner, one of Canadas first wildlife conservationists and noted for changing the migratory route of the Canada Goose, welcomed thousands of international visitors to his Jack Miner Bird Sanctuary each year.
Amalgamated with the Townships of Gosfield North and South in 1999, the new Town of Kingsville is an interesting blend of rural and Victorian charm.
