Description Story Links

While the rest of the county struggled with the effects of new technology on it's rail and commerce a new community of people would come to the area which relied mostly upon the county's natural resource: The land.

In the 1950's two groups of people came to the area to take advantage of it's agricultural facilities. The Amish left from the Indiana/Ohio area to avoid the Korean war draft and made farm land north of Aylmer their home, while the Low German Mennonite families established themselves in Malahide Township.
