Temiskaming Shores History

Haileybury was founded in 1903 during the Cobalt Silver Rush, which brought a large number of prospectors and miners to the area. At the time, silver was discovered in the nearby town of Cobalt, leading to a flurry of mining activity in the area.

Haileybury quickly became a major center of commerce, transportation, and industry in the region. The town was a hub for shipping goods and equipment to and from the mining camps and served as a base for many mining companies. The area around Haileybury was also rich in timber, and a large number of sawmills were established to process the wood.

In the early 20th century, Haileybury was home to a number of educational institutions, including the Haileybury School of Mines and the Haileybury College of Agriculture. These schools provided training for miners and farmers, respectively, and were an important part of the town’s economy.

In the mid-20th century, Haileybury experienced a decline in population and economic activity due to changes in the mining industry and the shift towards larger urban centers. However, the town has managed to maintain its identity as a charming small town with a rich history and cultural heritage. Just to the northeast of Haileybury along the lakefront grew another community New Liskeard

Temiskaming Shores was created in 2004 by the amalgamation of the town of New Liskeard, the town of Haileybury, and the township of Dymond.
