Dates of existence
Oro Township was first created in 1821 when, under an “Act for the better division of this province” Oro became a Township in the District of Simcoe. In 1831, when it was decided to open the township to settlement, Sir John Colborne, Governor, ordered the name be changed from Oro to Heytsbury. The Township name reverted back to Oro several years later. It was not until 1851 that Oro Township was incorporated.
