Credit Indian Village 1826

Between 1826 and 1847 a band of Mississauga who had converted to Christianity formed a settlement on the Credit River. With government assistance, they constructed log houses, a sawmill, a school and a chapel. By 1840, some 500 acres were under cultivation and the village contained about 50 houses.
