The Elgin Settlement began in 1849 and “ceased” settlement status in 1872, when the Elgin Association (which was the corporation that secured the lands for the settlement) officially ended. The Buxton Settlement became North Buxton and South Buxton. Descendants of the original settlers remain in the area to this day.
