(Information from C.A. Armstrong, Away Back in Clarendon & Miller)

Wensley Store was located on the north end of the Frontenac Road along the northwest end of Snow Road in Miller Township. This settlement started in 1861. Not much is known about the store, except that a post office was located along Snow Road on Lot 25 (Miller Township). A school was located near the post office as was Frank Wensley's store which he operated for several years. A cheese factory was established at Wensley before 1920. Most likely this store carried items needed for the survival of settlers such as fabrics, travelling shoes, thread, sugar, flour, candle wax, etc... These settlers were very resourceful and made whatever they could.
