Heritage Days

St. Davids celebrated its history by hosting a Heritage Festival.  Heritage committee

chair Al Steip says the event shows the residents our rich history, and brings the 

community together to learn our past.  St. Davids was the Capital of Upper Canada in

1812.  It became an important milling centre on Four Mile Creek.  There were four

gristmills, a tannery, and a sawmill.  Factories were built that made barrels, shoes,

candles, and soap.  We even had a brewery called Stamford Spring Brewery in 1836,

established by John H. Sleeman.  He said he believes events like these are a valuable 

tool to educating our future generations about our roots.  The Native community 

established its roots here 10,000 years ago.
