A Place Called Krugerdorf
by Herb Kruger
Small places in 'New Ontario' sprouted, flourished, grew and then faded away. Krugerdorf was one of them.
The development and the decline of many, in fact most, of the communities that sprang up in New Ontario in the early 1900s is evident wherever one travels throughout the north. The chosen area for this narrative about the four corners of the township's Pacaud, Catherine, Marter and Chamberlain that became a place called Krugerdorf in 1907, is one of many that could be told of the 'rise and fall' of these settlements.
Kruger believed that the days that once spawned such places are gone forever. And all we'll have left to remind us that there once was a place called Krugerdorf are our short memories. and a history such as this one.
