Rockwood — Small town Charms

John Harris, the first settler of Eramosa Township, built a small shanty in 1821, followed by Col. Henry Strange in 1840. In the 1850s, the community, originally known as Brotherstown, became known as Rockwood. In 1825, Samuel Rife was the first settler of Guelph Township. In 1827, a group of Scottish settlers called the La Guayrans, who originally settled in Venezuela, were resettled in Guelph Township by the Canada Company. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, Guelph Township became a centre for agricultural excellence through rural and agricultural educational institutions. Today Rockwood, the central hamlet of the Township of Guelph-Eramosa, is a thriving community that boasts an excellent quality of life. Proximity to Guelph and the GTA combined with the area’s natural beauty and boutique local amenities make Rockwood a charming place for families, nature enthusiasts and retirees alike.
