Cannington On.

I've tried to go to Cannington at least once or twice a year.  My family settled there in the early/mid 19th Century and owned the feed store at the corner of Anne and Cameron Sts. up until the early 20th century when my great granddad William G. Smith sold the business and retired to Toronto living in what is now Corso Italia just north of St. Clair east of Dufferin. The building that housed the feed store burned down back in the early 1990s and I've been trying to track down an exterior photo with no success as of yet. 

When I rolled through after seeing my cousins Cannington felt quiet compared to Beaverton. This is a true small Ontario farming town, not a toursit attraction like Elora. That said there are people with weekend retreats, the late Canadian author Timothy Findley and his long time partner had a hobby farm just outside of town. Where exactly, don't know.
