Founding of Stoney Point, The

Coincident with increased travel along the Tecumseh Road in the 1830s, small communities of predominantly French-speaking settlers began to form along the south shore of Lake St. Clair. Stoney Point (Pointe aux Roches) flourished briefly in mid-18th century until depletion of local timber resources reduced the village's mainstay industry.
