Description : "Well, many of us oldtimers actually still call it a township although it's really a town," shrugged Wallace, past-president of Innisfil's historical society. He and Warrington, the current president, have come together to talk about the past of a community that is 150 years old this year. In the 1700s, the western border of Quebec ran right near the current town of Innisfil. Back to the Seven Year's War and a time when England and France were fighting it out for a continent, from Louisbourg to the Plains of Abraham. The names of descendants and the cemeteries that dot the area, stones of white standing out against patchworks of green. Places like Cherry Creek, Allandale and Belle Ewart have risen and fallen in importance. Wallace said, "I think today Innisfil doesn't have anything big enough to call a town - really they're not much more than villages.
