History of Markdale
Markdale’s present name is derived from Mark Armstrong who, along with his family, was one of the first settlers in the area in 1853. First referred to as East Glenelg and then Corabus, Markdale was founded in 1846 by George Walker and Joseph Price. It was 1888 when Markdale was incorporated into a Village and was home to several businesses including a school, a bank, a wagon shop, a drug store, and three churches.
