Description
Elmira is set amid scenic rolling hills and fertile farmland. Early settlers included Mennonites from Pennsylvania; some of their descendants still use horses and carriages instead of motor vehicles.
The last of Ontario's covered bridges is in West Montrose, 10 kilometres (6 mi.) east of Elmira. The Kissing Bridge was built in 1881 at a cost of $3,100. Today the bridge is a popular subject for artists and photographers.
The town is famous for the Elmira Maple Syrup Festival, held each year in March or April. Visitors can sample local produce at the farmers market on Maple Street every Saturday, May through October.
