Welcome to Grimsby, the unofficial “Gate-Way” into the Niagara Peninsula.
Grimsby is also the birthplace of a now forgotten Hollywood director, Del Lord. He rose to acclaim as the director of most of the Three Stooges short vaudeville comedies.
Canada’s first Chautauqua was established in 1859 in Grimsby Park and Beach, but by 1900 interest had declined and by 1909 it had ceased. The Village of Grimsby was officially incorporated in 1876 and Grimsby became a town in 1922. Here we go Grimsby, here we go!
