dc.descriptionMerritton, Ont. was incorporated as a village in 1874. The Merritton Fire Department was established 14 years later on August 17, 1888, with Mr. A.R. Thompson as President and Richard Clark as Captain. The fire department became a unit of the St. Catharines Fire Department in 1961, when Merritton amalgamated with St. Catharines, Grantham and Port Dalhousie. The Merritton unit served the community until they disbanded in 1977. In 2017, a cenotaph was unveiled at the Merritton Town Hall that pays tribute to the Department.en_US
