Grey County Historic Community GIS Mapping Projects

Presenting two Grey County historic community mapping projects: 

Grey County Historic Communities features historic communities from around the County, those marked by brown signs on County Roads. Communities chosen for this project were established, but never grew, and are not recognized as settlement areas in the County's Official Plan. To be considered, communities had to meet two or more of the following criteria: general store, mill, blacksmith shop, school, post office, church or other religious meeting house, general store, cemetery / cenotaph, community centre, structure housing a fraternal organization (i.e. Orange Lodge, Masons, Knights of Columbus), or hotel / tavern.

Grey County Communities - Century+ Sampler Map, highlights a selection of century+ locations within larger "blue sign" communities. This project supported in part by Young Canada Works in Heritage Institutions/Jeunesse Canada au travail and its scope is to provide historic samples from all around the County, rather than being an exhaustive documentation.
