Hi, I would like to buy a small fixer upper there but it seems hard to find out who the owners are and how to contact them. If anyone knows of a place please let me know. Thanks. firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry, it's the second street after you make the left turn, then you turn right.
Hi, my name is Rob and I first visited shrewsbury around 2000 when my future father in law purchased a cottage their from one of his friends, we went their to stay for the weekends several times, I live in River Rouge, MI so the trip is about 1 hour from my home. In the years since my first visit all I can think of is how clean the air is and the people are so friendly, what I like the best is coming into the area and stopping at the mushroom plant to get some and the tomato farmers too are so friendly. I am currently trying to find a place their to call my own as a get away for my mother to visit to get away from the city (Detroit) or a summer cottage, do you know where I can find out about homes that will be sold for delinquent property taxes ? My in-laws property is just off he main street, turn left and its the first street on the right, second house on the right hand side...a green colored house

Hello Greg Brown

Chris and I are moving in on Princess street this weekend. We are very excited as we have been to Rhondeau Park many times over the years to camp or to spend the day. We LOVE the area and look forward to fixing up our property and perhaps to retire there.
Richard and Alicia Welch
Happy to know that our little area is appreciated as a gem. My family has been in the area for over 40 years. Shrewsbury is a great family village. A place where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city to relax and slow down. My neighbors are great. They have always been there for me in helping to maintain my property. Thanks Berry, Jack and Mr. Casey. Rick and I really appreciate you guys.

We live down the road from Larry Bovair and LOVE it! We just happened across the area as well and bought a cottage on a whim! It has been the best investment we have made together. It is a wonderful, magical and lovely neighborhood to be part of!
My Mom and I moved to Shrewsbury last November and we absolutely love it here. I look forward to raising my 2 month old son here.
Hey Calvin Hartford,
My name is Gregory Brown my brothers and I used to play baseball when we were kids with Basil and John Hartford.
Love living in Shrewsbury

For those who are looking for a quiet place to live or retire, this is the place! My husband and I bought a home here 2 years ago as a cottage, but now we live there full time and work in Chatham. Starry quiet evenings, birds in the trees and a community that is working hard to make a name for itself. Yes there are some places that have a lot to be desired, but slowly properties are changing hands and things are improving. Come and see for yourself, or hear for that matter. On any weekend you can hear the sounds of home improvement; hammers banging, saws cutting and so on. This is going to be some kind of place one day. If you have little kids, there are more and more families around, but there is not a lot of activities that I know of for the little one's to keep occupied, but everything you need is in Blenheim only 5 minutes away. There is great potential here. I can't say enough.

My family vacationed every summer in Shrewsbury when I was a child. We rented a green & white cottage from the Hanson family who lived in Detroit, Mi. They owned a red brick cottage similar to the one pictured below which was next door to the green & white cottage. Many summers they would bring their grandchildren, so we could play together. I have the fondest memories of those visits and wish I could contact or find these properties again. My husband & I drove up one spring to see if I could find the cottages, however everything had changed so much it was not possible. I know that the Hanson's had a daughter named Elaine Lewis.
I remember visiting Ma and Pa's restaurant (was that the name) who served up daily specials on a variety of china plates. It was absolutely charming. Would love to read more history on this community or talk to any of you who grew up spending time there.
I see a church in the pictures below. What was the church's name and is it still in operation?
the weather is acctually pree good arond shrewsbury snow when we get it dosent really stay tht long it mostly is cold because we are soo close to the lake
hey everyone ive been living there since i was born and now im 16 and i gotta say its getting better then what it was befor like there is less and less stuff going on but the way people are talking they want to get more thing going on like fishing tournements and stuff like tht and there is alot of stuff for younger kids to do to cuz its really open you dnt half to worrie about your kids getting hit by cars or being out to late cuz there is nothing you can do to get in truble. but all i wanted to say was why are people complaining about the places being run down well if your one of those people then you do something to change it.
Why would anyone want to live in this area...I was driving to Blenhim and made a detour...how depressing . So many places that are just a mess, yards are a mess, run down homes. I couldn't believe that a developer would build a new home to sell....awful.
Nice site. There is so little to be found online about Shrewsbury. Can someone tell me what it is like for young children there? As in parks, school, whatever to keep mine amused. We're considering moving there.

Shrewsbury averages about 110cm (45 in) of snow each winter. High temperatures in winter are around 0C (32F) and in summer are around 27C (80F). Summers can be humid while Spring and Fall are pleasant.
This is most fascinating...just found this little gem myself while searching Southern Ontario.
My husband and I are looking for a quiet country place to retire in a few years. His main concern is being somewhere with less snow, hence the search - I have relatives in Delhi.
Would one of you be kind enough to comment about weather in Shrewsbury?
Just new to the Shrew and love it. It was nice to come across these images of this amazingly peaceful and welcoming lakefront property that no one seems to have heard of. I hope to be here for many many years to come. The black history of this village is profound. You can feel the stories eminating off of the ground all around you.
I know exactly where all these houses are. I live in shrewsbury myself, just bought my first house here. I have lived here for all 23 years of my life. The Hartford family, which I am proud to be one of, has resided in Shrewsbury since it was first developed. I wish I had the equipment to send you more pictures. It is truely a wonderful place not only to live but to have grown up as well.
nice gallery of shrewsbury, im from shrewsbury town in england, i was curious to look at this gallery...v
Hey Ricky Briggs,
This is Terry Scott (Murphy). Haven't seen hide nor hair of you in ages. Do you frequent the village anymore? We just celebrated 85 years of Homecoming in Buxton.
Drop me a line sometime.
Hello, my name is Rick Briggs. My parents were one of the very first Americans of many from Detroit, MI and its suburbs to purchase and build a summer home there in Shrewsbury. If you are not aware, ALL, not some of the Americans that purchased property in Shrewsbury and built cabins were blacks. My family's cottage is on the corner of Peel and Metcalfe which I believe one of your website pictures (the green color house is directly across the street from. I still have immensely fond memories of the many years between my childhood and as an adult in Shrewsbury and what was/is called Ragland.
