Seaforth, Ontario, Canada

"Anticipating the construction of the Buffalo, Brantford and Goderich Railroad through this region during 1850-1853 Christopher and George Sparling acquired most of the present site of Seaforth. George laid out a subdivision in 1856 and Christopher sold most of his land in Tuckersmith Township to a syndicate, headed by James Patton of Barrie Ontario. Patton is said to have procured a railway station and named it Seaforth. Situated on the Huron Road (Hwy 8) and the railway, the town was a shipping point for wheat."

It wasn't long after that that Seaforth had a post office, several hotels, a doctor, a blacksmith, a wagon-maker and several firms engaged in the building trades and the buying and selling of grain. Seaforth was a noted grain-buying centre. At one time, firms were handling a million dollars worth of wheat each year, more than any point in Ontario, Toronto being no exception. The town was incorporated in 1875.
