Area information
Guelph/Eramosa is a township located in Wellington County, in midwestern Ontario, Canada. It partly encircles the city of Guelph. Rockwood is the main community in this townshipand located on Highway 7 between Acton and the city of Guelph. The Eramosa River runs through the centre of the village and is the reason for Rockwood's existence, having been the source of power for several mills that were the economic engine that spawned the original settlement. Limestone was also extracted from what is now the nearby Rockwood Conservation Area at that time. This area has hundreds of geological potholes which were formed at the end of the last ice age.
