St. Johns

Benjamin Canby's 1792 sawmill on Twelve Mile Creek formed the nucleus of the community of St. Johns, for several years the leading mill-centre in the Niagara region. Construction of the Welland Canal and the consequent emergence of small industries along its length, however, had undermined St. Johns' prosperity by 1850.
