Administrative history

The small community of Fisher’s Corners is situated five lots east of Highway Number 27 on the 9th concession of West Gwillimbury Township. Fisher’s Corners received its name from the fact that many years ago, approximately 1880, settlers by the name Fisher lived on or near all four corners. Fisher’s Corners Women’s Institute was organized at a meeting at the home of Mrs. George Atkins on July 22, 1921. There were sixty ladies in attendance at this meeting, a number being visitors from the Institute Branch at Coulson’s Hill. Fisher’s Corners Branch was organized by Miss Ethel Chapman, who had been sent out from the Department. The first president was Miss Marion Atkins, and due to her untiring efforts the institute soon began to flourish. Miss Olive Hounsome was the first secretary, Mrs. H. Sawdon was vice-president. Mrs. J.E. Loblaw and Mrs. Charles Wilson were directors and Mrs. W.J. Hounsome was the district Director.
