Appleton Museum news: Crown Land Patents for Appleton

Certified copies of the original Crown Land Patents for both the E and W halves of Lot 4, Concession X are in the possession of the North Lanark Historical Society.  The crown granted full rights of ownership of these lots, except for gold or silver mines, and white pines. These rights of ownership have been passed down to the present owners of all the properties within this original patent area. There is some controversy over the use of these patents for current legal purposes.

To check which properties are covered by these patents, and to review the controversy, visit our website:

The Public Lands Act is the law controlling  the patents.
