Raft Of Dreams

In 1851, Simon Orchard and Samuel Rowe were the first European settlers to arrive here by raft.  They landed at the confluence of the Saugeen and Teeswater Rivers, a mere 150 metres north east of this very location.  This mural commemorates and celebrates those first European settlers that built the village we call home.  Their guts grit and wild-eyed optimism saw them through years of back breaking labour and hardship.
