Downeyville Real Estate Listings and Information
Downeyville is a parish just east of Lindsay, in the City of Kawartha Lakes at the intersection of St. Luke's Road and Sturgeon Road. Nestled snugly in dairy farm country, this historic and predominantly Irish-Canadian community has strong, deep roots that were planted back when the first settlers arrived in May of 1825 from County Cork in Ireland. Over the years, the community has welcomed many into their fold including Dutch families who came to Canada following WWII. The mailboxes of this parish still bear the names of their ancestors who arrived here almost 200 years ago.
