South Stormont


A township in Eastern Ontario, South Stormont combines the counties of Stormont, Dundas, and Glengarry, and it was incorporated in 1998, amalgamating Cornwall and Osnabruck townships. Cornwall and Osnabruck were two of the original eight “royal townships” along the St. Lawrence River. These eight historic townships were established by Loyalists along the St. Lawrence River in the late 1700s. Sir John Johnson first settled in what is now South Stormont with members of the King’s Royal Regiment of New York in the late 1700s. If you visit the Lost Villages Museum, you will learn about the history and process that flooded up to a dozen villages in the mid-1900s to make way for the construction of the St. Lawrence Seaway. Top natural attractions in South Stormont include the extensive Waterfront trail, the North-South trail stretching from Cornwall Centre Road to the historical St. Andrews West, and the Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary. This bird sanctuary was established back in the 1960s and protects over 9,000 hectares of wildlife habitat. A trip here will offer up spectacular hiking and wildlife viewing opportunities!
