Springtown Reflections – A Study of People and Time



Springtown Reflections, by Irene Robillard, is a history of a region in the Arnprior/Calabogie/Madawaska River area of Ontario. It begins with the earliest settlers in the early to mid-nineteenth century. The author sketches the slow growth of the region, with the first rough houses, the square timber industry, the first post office, the McNab influence. There were gristmills and sawmills, and the busy area was mostly occupied by Scots and Irish immigrants.

But towards the end of the century, the square timber industry began to shift away from the area. The main occupation in Springtown became farming. Eventually the region declined, especially after the Great Depression. Springtown, however, still maintains a presence.
