  • Savor the unique features of our Driving Tour emphasizing the points of

    interest and the historical sites of Bruce Township. Over the course of history

    many places have been transformed due to natural causes and humans. Points

    of interest/historical sites that have no structure or viewable object are listed at

    the end of each defined section (NW, SW, SE, NW) and marked alphabetically

    on the map for that particular area. The remaining stops with visible points of

    interest are marked numerically on the map.

    The original survey of Bruce Township was started by Alex Wilkinson in 1847,

    continued by Allan Park Brough and C. Millar until completion in 1852.

    In 1854 the lands were opened and Bruce Township was founded in 1856.

    Central administration was located in Underwood until the amalgamation of

    the Township of Bruce as a part of the Municipality of Kincardine in 1999. The

    original administration building is now a garden centre. A satellite office for

    the Municipality remains at the Township of Bruce Community Centre.

    The first settlers to the area were mainly from the British Isles bringing with

    them their customs and skills to establish a new life in these untamed lands.

    They cleared lands, built homes and communities while overcoming many

    hardships leaving their footprint in Bruce Township. The shores of Lake Huron

    provided many natural harbours, refuge for ships, transportation for settlers into

    the area and shipping for their tanbark, grain, lumber, lime, and produce.

    Fishing along our shoreline has always been a part of Bruce Township's

    commerce as well as recreation.

    The main industries over the years have been agriculture, lumber, ports

    although they did not flourish, brickyards, Bruce Telecom, Bruce Nuclear site,

    windmills and tourism.

    An endeavor such as this would not be possible without the assistance and

    dedication of many individuals. We wish to extend considerable recognition to

    the Township of Bruce Historical Society, Bruce Telecom, the Bruce Nuclear

    site and the Municipality of Kincardine for their research work, photos and

    support necessary in developing this driving tour.
