Chesley, Ontario

Chesley Ontario is a fine example of what rural Ontario is actually like. Located along the banks of the Saugeen River north of Walkerton, the settlement originally began as “Sconeville”. In 1865 a post office was established and named after Solomon Chelsey, a former Indian Department official. Farming became a lucrative endeavour and with the completion of the Grand Trunk Railway the community became a mecca for the shipment of produce, livestock and lumber.

Today the town is known for the statue of a giant bull on the North end of town which is affectionately known as "Big Bruce".
