History. Wardsville was one of the earliest settlements in the area. George Ward, innkeeper played a central role in the War of 1812. Village and area has long-time residents who are keepers of the stories, traditions, arts, and culture. Though decayed, there is still a downtown with some heritage buildings remaining.
Wardsville has been a centre of hospitality since its beginnings as a white settlement. Wardsville Golf Club carries on this tradition as do the seniors’ homes. Tracing the history of hospitality in the area may re-introduce new ideas for marketing and business opportunity.
