Nature Trails near Wallacetown, Ontario

Welcome to Wallacetown!

Wallacetown is a community in the Township of Dutton/Dunwich.

Dutton/Dunwich is a municipality located in western Elgin County in Southwestern Ontario, Canada.  The municipality was formed in 1998 through an amalgamation of the Village of Dutton and former Township of Dunwich. It includes the Hamlets of Wallacetown, Duttona Beach, and the western parts of both Iona and Iona Station. It is bisected both by Highway 401 and by the rail lines of the Penn Central Railroad and the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway.[2]
Dutton/Dunwich houses a large farming community involving a variety of agricultural methods. The region is primarily made up of inhabitants of English ancestry, with minorities of Scotch, Portuguese, and Dutch heritage.

Stop in at the Backus-Page House museum or visit one of their many events to experience the living history of Colonel Talbot’s original community and find out why Dutton/Dunwich is called "the heart of the Talbot settlement".
Modern-day sights and sounds also offer the visitor much to enjoy - a spectacular view from bluffs high above Lake Erie, farm gate markets brimming with colourful produce, or sunset behind the lone inukshuk monument on the homestead of famed economist, scholar and statesman John Kenneth Galbraith.
