St. Marys was first settled in the early 1840s on the banks of the Thames River and Trout Creek. Here, the river water fell over a series of limestone ledges creating 'Little Falls', an early nickname for St. Marys. The falls provided power for the pioneer mills to make flour from grain grown in the surrounding landscape. The limestone was an early source of building materials for the community. St. Marys is now home to nearly 7,000 residents, elegant heritage buildings, an eclectic mix of downtown storefronts and vibrant community spirit.
