A brief history
The village of Marmora was the first mining town in Upper Canada. Settled in 1820, iron ore, gold, copper and silver were all mined in this and surrounding areas. The open-pit mine, a relic from the mining past, is located just East of the village and is 75 acres in size and 635 feet deep. There was also a large timber and logging industry which added to the economic well being of the town.
