Located in Perth County, the small town of Atwood was first settled in 1854. Formerly known as Elma Centre and then Newry Station, the community finally became known as Atwood in 1881. Today, the town retains its roots as a tight-knit community, with less than 1000 residents calling Atwood home. This makes Atwood a popular choice among families who are looking for the unique feel of a small, rural town.
Atwood offers several amenities for residents, including the Elma Memorial Community Centre and Lions Park. Here, you’ll find baseball diamonds, a swimming pool, tennis courts and a pavilion that plays host to local community events. Along Road 164, you’ll find small cafes, food markets, a post office and library and more amenities that serve the rural community.
