Fenwick, Ontario

In 1970, the Town of Pelham almalgamated five historical communities: Fonthill Ridgeville, Effingham, North Pelham and Fenwick into a single town. The town itself was settled in the 1790's and was mainly an agricultural centre. Although located above the escarpment the climate is tempered by the warming effects of the Fonthill Kame.
