Summary
Caledonia, just south of Hamilton, has a history closely tied to the heritage of the Grand River. From the Grand River Navigation Company of the 1830s to the current nine-span bridge in the centre of town, the river and the community have shared a special relationship. Intriguing entrepreneurs, town characters and prominent citizens have touched the life of Caledonia, leaving a legacy that is fascinating, sometimes amusing and richly anecdotal
