HISTORY

"The stiff breeze which troubled the first day of William Bull's journey around the Bruce Peninsula in the summer of 1873 was a clear signal that his landmark survey wasn't going to be easy.1  His was a voyage of assessment through an achingly beautiful landscape of rock and water.2

The Peninsula was never really a wilderness at all, with Indians living and travelling regularly through the area.  The Hurons were the first to be noted in recorded history and later came the Ojibway.  The Hurons originally called the Peninsula, Wendiaghy", which meant "island or peninsula cut off".  The Ojibway called it by their tribal name, "Saugink" or "Sauking", hence the Saugeen Peninsula or Indian Peninsula, the names used by white men."3

History books for the former municipalities are available for sale.
