Area Information
Mount Forest is a community located on tHwy 6 in the township of Wellington North, Ontario. The town's motto is "High, Healthy, Happy", which can be seen on the water tower when approaching the town from the south. The village was originally known as Maitland Hills, because it was believed to be on the Maitland River system. This was incorrect; the village is on a height of land near the headwaters of the Saugeen River. The village name was changed to Mount Forest in 1853. By 1864, the population had grown to 1185 so that it qualified to be incorporated as a village. By 1879, it had become an incorporated town. In 1871 the first train entered Mount Forest pulled by a wood-burning engine. Wikipedia
