Description Of Owen Sound


Geography
With about 22 000 inhabitants, Owen Sound is the largest urban area in Grey and Bruce counties. Highways 6, 10, 21 and 26 all meet here, making it an easy trip from any of SW Ontario's major cities. The city is ideally located as a port, with deep shelter from the waves of Georgian Bay provided by the sound. Owen Sound is hockey-crazy: it is the smallest city in Ontario with an OHL hockey team, the Owen Sound Attack.
History
Formerly a rowdy Great Lakes port known as Little Liverpool, it has matured into a tourist and cultural centre for the entire area. This represents a great improvement from its original reputation as a brothel town, where business hinged on the next arrival of a ship full of sailors. No doubt in an effort to combat this vice, the city declared itself dry, and maintained that status as recently as 1972. Home to the SummerFolk Festival, it is the birthplace of WW1 air hero Billy Bishop and Group of Seven artist Tom Thomson. A great place to delve into the local history is at the Grey Roots Museum, open year round just south of town. An excellent pictorial history can be found online at About Owen Sound Area.
