Queen Hill, located in Bruce County, was first settled in the early 1850s. Its principal focus was the North Bruce Presbyterian Church which remained active for over 100 years.

Queen Hill, with an average population of around 30, barely qualified as a hamlet. At its height it contained a blacksmith, general store, carpenter, and post office. The community’s nearest neighbour Cluny, located one concession south, shared all these services. School sections 13 and 14 served both communities.

Today a few small vestiges of Queen Hill still remain. Both schoolhouses still stand. S.S. #13 is currently in use as a community centre and S.S. # 14 sits on privately owned farm property. The manse still stands and is now a private home. Also remaining is the cemetery and a small cairn that marks the place where the North Bruce Church once stood. Learn more

How to get there

Queen Hill sits on Sideroad 15 and County Road 11 on the Bruce Saugeen town line in Bruce County. The cemetery is located a little east of the community on the south side of the road.
