Sunshine was a milling community located in Huron County. It was first established in the 1860s. A busy sawmill, followed by a small furniture factory brought prosperity to the small village for a number of years.

At its height, Sunshine contained the sawmill and factory, a blacksmith, store, school, Methodist church and an Orange lodge. Social activities revolved around the church and the Orange lodge.

Depletion of the surrounding lumber supply, coupled with the arrival of the railway in the neighbouring communities of Blyth and Brussels, all played a part in Sunshine’s decline. By the 1920s, Sunshine was virtually abandoned.

Today all that remains of this early community is the Methodist cemetery. Learn more
