The story of Fergus is one that’s steeped in the rich history of Canada’s colonial past. Founded in 1833, the following decades saw the tiny village of Fergus grow into a bustling mill town. Much like today, The Grand River was the heart of Fergus from the very beginning. The energetic flow of the river’s water was used to power the mills and nourish the farmlands, such as nearby Elora Mill pictured here. Today many of those same buildings that began to spring up nearly 200 years ago are still in use as homes and shops in Fergus’ downtown, giving Fergus a signature heritage flair that is increasingly difficult to find in Southern Ontario.
Visitors to Fergus today fall in love with the perfect mix of heritage atmosphere and modern convenience that can be found here. Whether you’re looking for a local pint at The Grand Templin Pub, a dragon roll at Ikiru Sushi or even rich Indian delicacies at Fergus Tandori Grill, you can enjoy a wide variety of culinary experiences here. There’s also charming shops, community centres, parks, natural spaces and more all waiting to be discovered.
Residents of Storybrook will enjoy the convenience and comfort that comes with living adjacent to a brand new state of the art hospital facility. Located just moments from the community, Groves Memorial Community Hospital is a facility that will include more space for emergency, ambulatory, diagnostic and inpatient services to accommodate the needs of this growing community. In addition to world-class care, this facility will also be a world-class employer for numerous physicians, nurses, support and administrative workers, making Storybrook an excellent home for health care employees looking for an incredible life/work balance.

Fergus is just one of the fine communities that you can discover in Wellington County. The surrounding area is dotted with countless hidden treasures in communities such as Guelph and Elora — places that offer amazing shopping, top restaurants, charming natural areas, golf and more are all just a short drive away. Get in your car and start exploring, and you’ll see that there’s even more to your “happily ever after” than you ever realized.


Just south of Fergus, Elora is another charming heritage town known for its famous waterfall, historic stone buildings, charming shops and top rated cafés and restaurants. Elora is also home to numerous art galleries and Gorge Cinema — Canada’s oldest continuously running reperatory theatre. For more heritage themed adventures try the Victora Street Walking Bridge, a classic steel structure first erected in 1899. There’s also the Elora Cateract Trailway and the Trans Canada Trail both just waiting to be enjoyed. If you’re feeling lucky you can even try your luck at the Grand River Raceway, featuring horse racing, slot machines, bingo and more.

Also nearby, The Elora Quarry Conservation area is a hotspot for swimmers and daredevil cliff jumpers, who can be seen taking the plunge off of the 12-metre high cliffs into the deep, cool waters of the quary below.

The Sorbara Group of Companies and Tribute Communities have a long history of collaboration in the development of visionary family communities throughout the GTA. The companies’ relationship began in the early 1990’s with the creation of The Village of Brooklin. At Brooklin, Tribute and Sorbara made history as the first development team to collaborate on every aspect of home and community design — working closely on everything from individual home architecture to landscaping and streetscape design. The end result was a truly cohesive master-planned community that is still regarded as one of the premier residential neighbourhoods in Whitby until this very day. The two companies are pleased to continue their legacy of collaboration with Storybrook in Fergus, with the belief that working together will allow them to create yet another exceptional family community that will stand the test of time.
