Port Burwell, Ontario
Originally part of Bayham Township, Port Burwell was surveyed in 1830 by Mahlon Burwell, surveyor for land grant recipient Colonel Thomas Talbot. A bustling port and rail terminal for much of its history, Port Burwell was incorporated as a village in 1949. It was reamalgamated with Bayham and the Village of Vienna to form an expanded Township of Bayham in 1998.
In November 2012, HMCS Ojibwa - a retired 'cold war' submarine was placed in a permanent site as part of a Museum of Naval History. It has already become an iconic attraction and it is expected to draw tens of thousands annually.
