There is an impassable dam at Dunnville which regulates the level of the Grand River at Port Maitland which, in the 19th century, also helped regulate the level of the Welland Canal (from 1829 until 1887 when the third canal began to intake its water directly from Lake Erie).

The European settlement was originally built as the entrance to the Welland "feeder" canal and the town once boasted several water-powered mills and a once-bustling canal port.

The feeder canal closed in the late 1880s and the last mill was destroyed and replaced with a condominium complex about ten years ago.

Seven of us had a dinner outdoors under the shelter. The breading was well done and home fries were tasty.

We had a half hour wait on a Sunday night, which wasn't bad and enjoyed the view of the Grand River outside. We both had the starter Greek salad and the perch dinner.

In 1974, the town amalgamated with the townships of Dunn, Canborough, Moulton and Sherbrooke when the Regional Municipality of Haldimand-Norfolk was formed.

In 2001, Dunnville and all other municipalities within the region were dissolved and the region was divided into two single tier municipalities with city-status but called counties.
