Attractions The Huron Historic Gaol is a National Historic Site of Canada. It served as the region's gaol (old English form of ''jail'') from its opening in 1842 until 1972. , the route is significantly shorter than when it travelled beyond Hamilton (Hamilton, Ontario) to Niagara Falls (Niagara Falls, Ontario). However, the Queen Elizabeth Way replaced the role of Highway 8, and it was subsequently transferred from provincial to local jurisdiction. Today the highway connects Hamilton and Cambridge, thereafter continuing through Western Ontario to the community of Goderich (Goderich, Ontario) on the shores of Lake Huron. History Highway 8 is one of the oldest provincial highways in Ontario, having first been established in 1918. Up until the early 1970s, the highway was much longer than its current length, extending from Goderich (Goderich, Ontario) through Kitchener-Waterloo (Regional Municipality of Waterloo), Cambridge (Cambridge, Ontario), and Hamilton to Niagara Falls. However, in 1970, the Government of Ontario decided that the stretch of Highway 8 between Winona (Winona, Ontario) (just east of Hamilton) and Niagara Falls was no longer of major transportation significance, since by this time most traffic used the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW), just to the north, to go between the two locales. Accordingly, the province downloaded this section of the highway to the newly-formed Regional Municipality of Niagara, which designated the road as Regional Road 81 (Niagara Regional Road 81). In 1998, the provincial government of Mike Harris carried another downloading of the highway to municipal authorities; this time the section between the town of Peters Corners (Peters Corners, Ontario) (near Dundas (Dundas, Ontario)) and Winona was transferred to the Regional Municipality of Hamilton-Wentworth. Ontario Highway 8 History - The King's Highways of Ontario The first settler in the area was William Hobson, an agent of the Canada Company who was part of a team that went to Goderich (Goderich, Ontario) in 1829. Hobson preferred the area around what is now Haysville and built a log cabin there. In the 1830s, he built a hotel near the Nith River which became a popular stop on the trail between Guelph and the Huron Tract. Haysville continued to be a busy stage coach stopover until the Grand Trunk Railway arrived in 1856 and bypassed the village and went through New Hamburg instead. - Goderich (Goderich, Ontario) Deb Shewfelt (X) (acc.) -
