Samuel Smith and the Egleston family, both owned the land at one time. Francis Whitton bought the farm and landscaped it with spacious lawns and the beautiful gardens. He built a large elegant home, a garage, greenhouse and gardener’s cottage.
The Whitton home was sold to the Sherman family. Clifton Sherman, an American with years of experience in foundry management, established the Dominion Foundries and Steel Co. also known as dofasco in 1912.
Members of the Sherman family became well-known in the local community and managed Dofasco for decades until Frank Sherman stepped down.
After the death of Frank Sherman, Colin Dunbar bought the property. It is from the Sherman family that the waterfall got its name.
