Seaforth, Huron County Ontario
Anticipating the construction of Buffalo, Brantford and Goderich Railroad through this region, Christopher and George Sparling acquired, during 1850 - 1853, most of the present site of Seaforth.
George laid out a subdivision in 1856 and Christopher sold most of his land in Tuckersmith Township to a syndicate headed by James Patton of Barrie. Patton is said to have procured a railway station and named it Seaforth.
Situated on the Huron Road and the railway, and being a shipping point for wheat, Seaforth had a post office by December 1859, was incorporated as a village in 1868 and as a town in 1875. [Source: Provincial Plaque located in Seaforth's Victoria Park]
