Wardsville is a village settlement on the Thames River in the Municipality of Southwest Middlesex in southwestern Ontario. We are located half way between Toronto and Detroit city at the centre of four counties: Elgin, Middlesex, Lambton and Kent.
Wardsville is surrounded by beautiful river country, the largest Carolinian Remnant in Canada, (lovingly called Skunk’s Misery) a 50-year-old 27-hole golf course, fertile farmland, and the Big Bend Conservation area. Located on Longwoods Road, a path that eventually becamse the King’s Highway #2, Wardsville has always been a place where people could find food, lodging, and hospitality. Mr. Ward, the original innkeeper, played a part in the Battle of the Longwoods in 1813, – a couple miles east.
