hamlet of Haley Station was
established sometime between
1845 and 1850 when two men by
the names of George Haley and
John Ross purchased Crown land
located on the present day site
of Haley Station. In the hamlet’s
early years, it served as a
postal hamlet and railway station.
The Canadian Central Railway
constructed a railway line through
the hamlet in 1876 and the first
post office was inaugurated
on May 3rd, 1878.
It is reported
that in 1908 the hamlet offered
two churches, a general store,
a cheese factory, a blacksmith
shop and grain elevators. Later
in 1922, the Trans-Canada Highway
was built alongside the hamlet.
Nowadays, Haley Station offers
residents a country atmosphere
yet it is located in close proximity
to the Town of Renfrew which
provides all the amenities of
a larger populated area.
