Founding of Colborne, The

After Joseph Keeler opened a store on the site of present-day Colborne about 1819, other small businessmen followed suit and a community began to grow. With the opening of harbour facilities and the arrival of the railway in the 1840s and 1850s, Colborne became an important service centre for the region.
