Founding of Stratford, The

Despite activity by the Canada Company, the market centre of Little Thames was slow to develop at first. In the 1850s, with its designation as the administrative seat of Perth County and with the advent of railway connections to Goderich and Sarnia, the town - now called Stratford - became a thriving commercial centre.
