Arva, ON

Arva is located just north of London at the intersection of Provincial Highway 4 (Richmond Street) and Medway Road (7th Concession). While it is not located within the formal boundaries of the City of London many individuals who work in London reside in Arva, and vice versa.

The community is the home of Medway High School, Centennial Central Public Dual Track School, Tamarak tree farm, Weldon Park, the Arva Flour Mill, a consignment store, a furniture store, a sewing store/quilting shop, a tack shop, a post office, and two churches, as well as personalities such as the current mayor of the City of London.

Arva is located on a pond (known as "the mill pond") on Medway Creek. There is also a forest known as the sanctuary (in St. John's Estates); the bush runs along the creek and goes down in to a camp site that at one time was quite popular.

A person living in Arva, and who has been for an extensive amount of time, is considered an Arvite. (http://neighbourgoodguide.ca)

In the 19th century Arva was a critical rest stop on the Underground Railroad, and home to several homes constructed as part of the Railroad.

Fall is approaching! It’s such a beautiful time of year with the leaves changing colors and the chrysanthemums in bloom. But the temperature also falls with the leaves, and precipitation tends to increase. Many homeowners may remember to change the batteries in their smoke detectors, and will start stocking up on yard waste bags for raking leaves, but many other important items may be overlooked. ...

I know it's over-priced. I know you have to wait in-line. I know that the specialty coffees are extremely high in calories! I know , I know, I just can't help myself. The Cinnamon Dolce is to die for! If I am feeling extra guilty (and let's face it who doesn't these days) I will go for a skinny latte. There are only about 100 calories and gives me a smile. Gosh it just smells so good. The staff ... Read More...
