Tara, ON

Within the geographical area of Arran Township, a community on the Sauble River began to develop, first with mills and gradually with other industries. In 1862, a post office opened under the name of “Eblana.” This later changed to Tara, and the community was incorporated as a Village effective January 1, 1881.

In January 1999, Tara, Arran Township, Paisley, Chesley, and Elderslie Township amalgamated to form the Municipality of Arran-Elderslie in January 1999.
