Hiram Walker chose the Indian word” Mettawas” meaning the “confluence of waters” to describe the location of the property.
The mass production of agricultural implements for the farm and appliances for the home created a new class of wealthy entrepreneurs in North America during the last 30 years of the 19th century.

Besides the construction of the massive Mettawas Hotel, a waterworks system had to be completed in order to provide adequate water.
