Founding of Killarney, The

In 1820, the fur trader Etienne de la Morandière moved to the site of present-day Killarney, then known as Shebahonaning. He cleared land, planted crops, and even imported cattle. The remote settlement he founded continued to develop over the years despite the fact that until Highway 637 opened in 1862 it was accessible only by water.
