Meldrum Bay is one of those rare and beautiful Ontario villages that is largely untouched by modern development. Settled in the 1870s and named after a town in Scotland, Meldrum Bay quickly grew into a successful commercial fishing and lumbering centre.
This is the shoreline down by the Mississagi Lighthouse. Meldrum Bay is an amazing place to visit. All those who live there - I hope you know how incredibly lucky you are!!! posted on facebook by Juliette Medeiros https://www.facebook.com/MeldrumBayInn
he Mississagi Lighthouse and Museum. Located on the southwest shore some 12 kilometers from the village, the lighthouse guards the treacherous Mississagi Straits. Now serving as a museum and restaurant and furnished as it was for the lighthouse keeper and his family years ago, this working lighthouse provides glimpses into the marine history of the Great Lakes.
Located about six kilometres from the village, at the water’s edge on the western shore of the Island, is the largest quarry operation in Canada. The Lafarge Quarry produces dolomite used in concrete, road construction and metallurgical processing, and all of their product leaves the area on huge ocean-going freighters.
