History[edit | edit source]
The town was incorporated in 1871 and was named after Joseph Walker, who settled in this area in 1850.
On January 1, 1999, it became part of the Municipality of Brockton by amalgamating the former township of Brant, former township of Greenock and the town of Walkerton. Brockton's name was formed as a portmanteau of the three merged municipalities (Brant Greenock Walkerton).
Communities in the Municipality of Brockton include the former town of Walkerton and the villages within the boundaries of the two former Brant and Greenock Townships: Bradley, Cargill, Chepstow, Dunkeld, Eden Grove, Glammis, Greenock, Little Egypt, Malcolm, Maple Hill, Narva, Marle Lake, Lake Rosalind, Pearl Lake, Pinkerton, Portal, Riversdale and Solway.
