Area information
MARKDALE is on Highway 10 North of Brampton (60 miles) or 22 miles South of Owen Sound 40 Miles East of Walkerton or 50 Miles West of Barrie. Markdale was first settled in 1846 and originally called East Glenelg, after a nearby township. In 1864, it was renamed Cornabus after the Islay, Scotland hometown of then-postmaster Donald MacDuffie (1814–1892). In 1873, Mark Armstrong sold land to the Toronto, Grey and Bruce Railway on the condition that the station bear his name. Unlike nearby Flesherton, which had failed to prosper after the railway by-passed it, the new railway station brought new business to Markdale. It was incorporated as a village in 1888. Compilation
