Mr. & Mrs. Addison Hager


This is likely Almira (Smith) whom Addison married in 1894 when he was 58 years old. Palermo, founded as Hagartown (also written as "Hagarstown", is a former village in Trafalgar Township, Halton County, Ontario. The village was established in 1805 by Lawrence Hagar, a settler to Upper Canada from Pennsylvania at the intersection of Bronte Road and Hwy. 5, (Dundas Street). The village was named Hagartown until 1836 when it was renamed to Palermo in honour of Horatio Nelson, Lord of Palermo for the opening of the post office. By the 1870s the village had two stores, a hotel, wagon shop, blacksmith shop, harness shop, brick school house, churches, a telegraph office and drill shed. The main businesses were run and owned by the Hagar family in the 1800's. The village was amalgamated with Oakville in 1962 along with Trafalgar Township, and other nearby villages.
