Here is beautiful gothic architecture illustrated by St. George's Anglican Church on the main street of Vernon. The village is located in the southern part of Osgoode Township and was settled mainly by Scottish immigrants from Breadalbane, Renfrewshire and Perthshire. Some of these pioneer families had hoped to join earlier immigrants who came to nearby Glengarry Township starting in the 1780's.
