Historically Alma...



  • Pioneers began settling along the Elora Saugeen Road, which forms the main street of Alma, during the 1840s.
  • Alexander MacCrea and his wife settled here in 1848, and built a store. The "MacCrae's Corners" post office was established in 1854, and MacCrae was postmaster.
  • In 1854, the settlement's name was changed from MacCrae's Corners to "Alma", after the Battle of Alma.
  • James Ledingham and his family moved to Alma in 1864, and built a saw and chopping mill.
  • In 1865, St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church was established in Alma. The church moved to a new stone church in Alma in 1892.[3]
  • The Wellington, Grey and Bruce Railway built a line through Alma in 1870. The line was eventually taken over by Canadian National Railway, and was abandoned in 1983. The Alma railroad station has since been destroyed.
  • After the railway was constructed, Alma became "a bustling service centre for the local settlers and travellers".[5] Alma was noted for having a post office, wagon maker, weaver, telegraph office, shoemaker, grist mill, several saw mills, several stores, three churches, and four hotels. In 1879, the population was 250.
