Port Stanley sits sanguinely on the shores of Lake Erie and is adjacent to Kettle Creek a feeder water system that supplies part of the water that fills the lake. It has an interesting history and its namesake provided the hold grail of hockey to the world. Named after a British Lord, Lord Edward Smith-Stanley who became British Prime Minister. PM Stanley had a son, Frederick who became the next Lord Stanley and he had an affection for ice hockey. So much so, that he awarded a sterling silver cup that bears his name to this today and is presented to the champions of the National Hockey League. The hockey aficionado was a rare bird by peerage standards who was a true Canuck if there ever was one. 'Port' as it affectionately known by the locals has been a freshwater port for the life of its’ existence and the settlement was put down there for the transportation opportunities it offered and it was a shipping and fishing village until the railroad made its’ way across southern Ontario. Back in the day, as it is now, Port Stanley is a vacation destination in the summer months and the town had the largest ballroom for dancing in the greater London-Port Stanley area. Bluebloods and locals mixed at the Stork Club and swing music could be heard across the lake as couples danced the night away. Now, the town’s major attraction is the beach that is the welcome mat for the community and tourism is the most predominant industry.
