Star of Bethlehem – Archibald, the brother of Duncan McKillop – whose descendants still manage the farm he cleared at 24810 Talbot Line – settled here in the early 1800s. A “fold” of Highland cattle can be found in this field; a hardy breed that survived in the Scottish Highlands with their long hair. Nearby are the McKillop Cemetery and the Particular Covenanted Baptist Church, a denomination founded by Scots in West Elgin in the 1820s.
