original location

(Category:Ingersoll, Ontario) A cheese of 7,000 lb (3,175 kg) was produced in Ingersoll, Ontario, in 1866 and exhibited in New York and Britain; it was immortalised in the poem "Ode on the Mammoth Cheese Weighing over 7,000 Pounds" by James McIntyre (James McIntyre (poet)), a Canadian poet. He later moved to Ingersoll, Ontario, then a town of 5,000 on the banks of the Thames (River Thames, Ontario) in Oxford County (Oxford County, Ontario), the then-heart of Canadian dairy country. He opened a furniture factory on the river as well as a store which sold furniture, along with such items as pianos and coffins.

Dickson's Florist was wiped out and the Fry home was moved on its foundation. Father Grondziel of the new Polish (Poland) Roman Catholic Church, next to the Dominion Food Store, had just stepped into the washroom when one of the tornadoes passed by and took off the roof of the church and everything in the room he had just been in. No one on the street was injured but the cleanup took many weeks. On the south side, the buildings of the Maranatha Christian Reformed Church and the John Knox Christian School were destroyed, and the only fatality occurred when a vehicle on Highway 401 (Ontario Highway 401) was blown off the road and the lone occupant killed.

Ingersoll, Ontario

'''Ingersoll''' is a town in Oxford County (Oxford County, Ontario) on the Thames River (River Thames, Ontario) in southwestern Ontario, Canada. The nearest cities are Woodstock (Woodstock, Ontario) to the east and London (London, Ontario) to the west.

Ingersoll is situated north of and near Highway 401 (Ontario Highway 401). Oxford County Road 119 (formerly Ontario Highway 19) serves the town. The local high school is Ingersoll District Collegiate Institute.

The area was well known for cheese production, and was home to the first such factory in Canada from approximately 1840. In 1866, a giant block of cheese weighing was produced at the James Harris Cheese Factory for promotion of the town's cheese industry. The "Big Cheese" was exhibited in England and in the United States at the New York State Fair in Saratoga.

Heavy manufacturing is currently Ingersoll's largest industry, including manufacturers such as CAMI Automotive, a General Motors (General Motors Canada) car manufacturing plant that was originally a joint venture with Suzuki Motors of Canada (Suzuki#Suzuki Canada Inc.).
