Goderich Street, Port Elgin

Port Elgin, ON

Port Elgin is an enterprising and prosperous incorporated village, pleasantly situated on the shores of Lake Huron. It is a station on the W.G.&B.R.R. and is distant five miles from Southampton, 25 from Kincardine, and 27 from Walkerton. It occupies a level plateau overlooking the lake, and is well laid out, with fine broad streets. It contains a number of substantial business blocks, and tasty private residences. The main street is well lined with stores and shops, devoted to the various branches of mercantile and manufacturing industries. Port Elgin can boast of some of the largest mercantile establishments in the County, notably those of the Messrs. Bricker & Co., Ruby & Hilker, McLaren, George & Co., with others of lesser dimensions, but all doing a flourishing trade. The establishment of D. O. Bricker & Co. is perhaps the most extensive mercantile house of any country town in Ontario. It occupies a substantial brick block, three stories and mansard roof, with a frontage on two streets, and with the store houses and other outbuildings, covers an area of about one acre. From 20 to 25 hands are employed, and an immense trade is done in general merchandise, and in the manufacture of boots and shoes, tinware, clothing, &c. The village was first surveyed in 1853.
