A Hamlet named Fort MacDonnel began to be called Killaloe Station as early as 1894 when The Ottawa, Arnprior, Parry Sound Railway forged it's way through the area. That railway was part of the empire of Lumber Baron J. R. Booth.

Downtown Killaloe

The Village of Killaloe Station was incorporated in 1908, about a mile north of another location now known as "Old Killaloe".

The last passenger train rolled into the station in 1962, and six years later the train station was torn down.

Killaloe Station changed it's official name to Killaloe in 1988, and Station Park was built on the former rail site in 1994. The covered bridge at Station Park is a well known area landmark.


Wilno has become well known as Canada's First Kashubian Settlement!
This is a unique place where the legacy of history lives on.

Reminders of Wilno's Kashubian Heritage are everywhere. You'll find roadside shrines, historic names on rural mailboxes and Rousing Kashub Day Celebrations at Wilno's Kashubian Heritage Park.

Some descendants still speak the Kashubian language spoken by the Kashubian pioneers who settled the area in the 1859.

Today's Wilno is a well known location for Art Galleries, Photographers, Furniture Makers and Craftspeople.

And don't forget the Church!
Wilno is home to St. Mary's Catholic Church, which is home to Our Lady of Sianowo, Queen
of Kashubia. Perched over highway 60, this beautiful church offers a stunning view
of the valley below.
