Intro To Perth County
Perth County, was created in January 1850 with eleven townships from the former Huron and Wellington Districts. With the opening of the first courthouse at Stratford in January 1853, the County was separated from the united counties of Huron, Perth, and Bruce to determine its own future. Five urban municipalities - Stratford, St. Marys, Mitchell, Listowel and Milverton - were incorporated over the years in addition to the townships.
The four municipalities within the county are the Municipality of North Perth, the Township of Perth East, The Township of Perth South and the Municipality of West Perth. While The City of Stratford and the Town of St. Marys are geographically inside the County, they function with a separate existence outside the County government.
