Area Information
Rockland is a community located about 40 kilometres (25 mi) east of downtown Ottawa and is part of the city of Clarence-Rockland. In 1868, a young entrepreneur, William Cameron Edwards, decided to establish a sawmill at the McCaul point. The opening of a link to the Grand Trunk Railway followed in 1888 to allow wood and merchandise to be transported. Edwards, who held timber rights in the area and was also the first postmaster, named the area for the rocky nature of its landscape. Construction of a second railroad in 1908 linked Ottawa and Hawkesbury. Economic recovery began in 1939 with the start of the Second World War, and the return of soldiers after the war brought an increase in population. Wikipedia
