This community was established in 1889, having formerly been inhabited by indigenous cultures until The Treaty of Fort Industry pushed them further west. Permanent settlement in the area began around 1818, and the city had thrived ever since… doing so while preserving its history, thanks largely to a passionate group of locals. Today, the Oldest Stone House Museum in Lakewood offers an excellent glimpse into the history of the city… and it actually dates back to when the community was known as Rockport Township.
