History[edit]

Cornwall and Osnabruck were two of the original eight "Royal Townships" established along the Saint Lawrence River in Upper Canada. Osnabruck was named after a title formerly held by Prince Frederick, son of George III, who at one time was Prince-Bishop of Osnabrück in Lower Saxony, and Cornwall was named for Prince Frederick's title as Duke of Cornwall.

This area was first settled by members of Sir John Johnson's King's Royal Regiment of New York, and became Stormont County in 1792.

The Lost Villages, ten ghost towns which were flooded by the construction of the Saint Lawrence Seaway in 1958, were located in the former Cornwall and Osnabruck Townships. The communities of Long Sault and Ingleside were newly built to accommodate displaced residents of the flooded villages. Due to this relocation, the towns were entirely planned from their inception - a rarity in Ontario. Several streets in the two communities are named for the flooded settlements.
