The Lake Erie Shore: Ontario's Forgotten South Coast
The Lake Erie shoreline has born witness to some of Ontario’s earliest history, yet remains largely unspoiled. Much of the area’s natural features - the wetlands, the Carolinian forests - and its built heritage - fishing ports and military ramparts - provide much of interest for vistors to the region.
Ron Brown has traversed this most southern coast line in Ontario, fleshing out forgotten stories of the past, from accounts of the world’s largest freshwater fishing fleet, War of 1812 skirmishes, links with the Underground Railroad, forgotten outposts and canals, the introduction of wineries, and the legacy of the many appealing towns and villages that hug the shoreline.

I am the Port Maitland local amateur historian who foolishly followed someone else's lead and had a sign erected at the Port Maitland Lock naming it Lock 27. I am sorry this information is WRONG It never was called Lock 27. It was known as the Port Maitland Lock. If possibly please correct this error in your future writing.
