Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Madoc is a township in Eastern Ontario, Canada, in Hastings County. Mills and ironworks gave initial stimulus to the community of Madoc. Following the discovery of gold-bearing quartz in 1866, the community prospered as an industrial centre. Eldorado was the site of Ontario's first gold rush in August 1866. People soon came from all over North America to this area. The township was named after legendary Welsh prince Madoc ap Owain Gwynedd, credited by some with discovering North America in 1170.show more
