Palmerston »

Palmerston is a community in the Town of Minto in Wellington County, Ontario. Palmerston is located on Highway 23, approximately 40 minutes from Kitchener/Waterloo and is only an hour to great summer beaches such as Port Elgin.
Palmerston was a key division point for the Grand Trunk and later the Canadian National Railway in Southwestern Ontario with 6 subdivisions; Owen Sound, Kincardine, Durham, Fergus, Guelph Junction and Stratford. In its original concept, the railroad was to run from Guelph to Harriston and would not have gone through Palmerston. Listowel needed to be linked to the railroad and it was decided to bend the route towards Listowel. It was also decided that a yard with maintenance shops would be needed. The mainline under Canadian National ownership became part of the Fergus, Owen Sound and Southampton Subdivisions. Passenger serviced ceased in 1971. The subdivisions were abandoned starting with Fergus to Palmerston in August 1983, Harriston Jct. to Port Elgin and Southampton in 1988, Guelph to Fergus in 1988 and Palmerston to Harriston in 1995. And all rail service terminated in 1996 with CN abandoning the line from Stratford to Harriston.
Important to this area, is the PALMERSTON & DISTRICT HOSPITAL providing individualized, medical services designed to meet the needs of each patient. Dedicated health professionals provide careful assistance and quality care, personalized to meet the needs of each patient.
