- John D. Larkin, a successful industrialist from Buffalo, started buying land in Niagara in 1900. He purchased Glencairn near Queenston and developed three farming communities in the township with over 1,700 acres of land. One group was built on "Upper" or "Mountain farm", these were all flooded when the hydro dam was constructed in 1948. Another grouping was called "Middle Farm" and about a mile north of Queenston. The third group or "Lower Farm" was later owned by Harry Larkin and became famous as a fruit and cattle farm.
Lionel Orbell worked on the "Lower Farm" for more than 30 years.
