Description:
Highlands East (2006 population 3,089) is a township located in Haliburton County, Ontario, Canada.

History

The township was incorporated in 2001, upon the amalgamation of the former townships of Bicroft, Cardiff, Glamorgan and Monmouth.

Cardiff is located on Highway 118 between the towns of Bancroft and Haliburton. The Cardiff Elementary School is a small school. The community also has a Royal Canadian Legion hall, a Catholic and United Church, as well as an outdoor pool which is popular during the summer. The entrance to the townsite, off of Highway 118, is marked by a large metal sculpture of a dragonfly.

Gooderham is bordered on the south by the Irondale River and Pine Lake to the north. It is located on a now defunct railway line, the IB&O Railroad, part of which has been since converted into a trail network.

In any case, it was called Gooderham by the time the first post office was established in 1873. The first mills were built by 1875 using the waterfall between Gooderham Lake and the Irondale River....
