Kingarf was a small service and supply hamlet located in a remote area of Bruce County. Transportation to the area was difficult and the settlers tried to make the most out of their limited resources.

In the early days the settlement contained a school that doubled as a church, a store, post office, and a couple of blacksmith shops. An Anglican Church was built in the late 1860s.

Improved transportation in the early 20th century led to the establishment of a few new businesses. These included two sawmills and two brick and tile yards that survived into the 40s and 50s.

Today Kingarf has reverted back to farmland. The one exception is the Anglican Church which continues to thrive and hold regular services. Learn more
