Drummond:
Balderson:

Fergusons Falls:
Located on the Mississippi River and was named for Captain John Ferguson. It was known as Millford in early times. The first settler located in 1815-16. Robert Hicks kept a general store and the post office. It shows on the Historical Atlas for Lanark County.
Innisville:
Also located on the Mississippi River. First deeded in 1815-16 and was called Freer's Falls. It was then named after James Ennis. Ennisville PO is seen in the Historical Atlas for Lanark County.
Perth:
Was built as a military settlement. 26th March 1816 a road was completed to the spot where the government storehouse would be located. Perth was the main town during the time the area was settled and was the county seat. It shows clearly in the Historical Atlas of Lanark County.
Prestonvale:
Does not show by name in the Historical Atlas of Lanark County but there are two churches close to the site.
