Waterloo County in the 1800’s was a vast wilderness without roads, canals and railways to provide communication and the transportation of goods. Pioneering on all of Canada’s frontiers was quite a challenge for survival; cloth for blankets and clothing, carpets to cover wood floors, pails, and children’s toys were all homemade. The first pioneers to move to Canada were the Mennonites that purchased lots on both sides of the Grand River. Young Deacon Jacob Bechtel came with his loyalist family to settle in Blair. Jacob’s son Henry was a miller, and his house and sawmill are still in Blair, near the junction of Old Mill Road and Blair Road. Persistence, optimism, thrift, resourcefulness and the acceptance of unremitting hard work became character traits valued by succeeding generations of pioneers. Rev. Joseph Baumann was a relative latecomer when he arrived in the area in 1816. He bought old Samuel Betzner’s farm on Old Mill Road and built a sawmill. This is the first sign of industrialization which promised progress and prosperity to the pioneering community. Joseph’s son Samuel, later known as Miller Sam, built a four-story flower mill which is still in business as the Blair Mill.
