Welcome to Tavistock, Ontario, Canada Online.
This site is a guide to local businesses, organizations, local events and weekly updates of life in our village. Tavistock is a German/Scottish community founded in 1848 and famous for its cheese production and fresh meats. We host an Annual Sauerkraut Supper, Annual World Crokinole Championship, and this year the Southwestern Ontario Open Fiddle and Stepdance Competition. (See "Events")
Tavistock was founded in 1848 by Capt. Henry Eckstein on the boundary between Oxford and Perth Counties. It served as a gathering place for agricultural workers and soon became equipped with taverns, flour mills, blacksmith shops, general stores and small tradesmen.
