Glen­garry’s most southerly lo­ca­tion is si­t­u­ated on the St. Lawrence River. Orig­i­nally named Kirk­town, this area fea­tures his­toric homes and gift shops, with nearby Cooper Marsh Con­ser­va­tion area pro­vid­ing marsh­land, treed swamps, up­land mead­ows, ponds and streams.

South Lan­caster be­came the trans­porta­tion point for the back con­ces­sions, first with the build­ing of a wharf for boats to carry potash and tim­ber and then by steam­boats, which ar­rived on Lake St. Fran­cis in 1826.
