History of Norval,Ontario,Canada

Norval, Ontario,Canada has an interesting history because of the many individuals and groups who settled the area.

Around 1820 James McNab and his family arrived and built a grist and saw mill on the Credit River.

In 1836 the Post Office was established. Earlier names for the hamlet were McNabsville and McNab's Mill.

In 1838, the mills were sold to Peter Adamson.

Norval became a thriving village, complete with a broom factory, ashery, bakery, woolen and flax mills, carriage works, a blacksmith and harness shops, brass foundry, general stores, several hotels, a Mechanics' Institute and an Orange Lodge. It was a main stop on the stagecoach ride from Guelph to Toronto.

In 1954 the grist mill was destroyed by Hurricane Hazel. In 1972 the remaining structures were removed to expand Highway Seven.
