History / Biography
Under the Baldwin Municipal Act of 1849, the United Counties of Lanark and Renfrew (known from 1841 to 1849 as the District of Bathurst) were first established and given self-government. In 1861, a separation was resolved upon and a Provisional Council was established for the erection of county buildings. On October 10, 1866, the County of Renfrew became an independent corporation. The County Council was then composed of 22 reeves, representing the 22 local municipalities. By 1896, the County Council had increased to 26 reeves and 7 deputy-reeves.

History / Biography
Arnprior was first settled by Europeans in 1825 when Archibald McNab brought 80 settlers from Scotland to the township he named after himself. In 1862, Arnprior was incorporated as a village and in 1892, it was incorporated as a town. The population grew as Arnprior provided employment through its various industries, most notably the McLachlin Mills, the Kenwood Mills, the Canadian Public Booth Co., M. Sullivan and Son, Pfizer and Scheel Windows to name only a few. Over the years, Arnprior has grown into a thriving community providing its residents with a wide range of social and public services.
