THIS WEEK IN HIS­TORY

The Woolwich Observer - - COMMENT -

The man whose name is syn­ony­mous with St. Ja­cobs passed away this week af­ter a lengthy bat­tle with cancer. Milo Shantz was 76. Be­gin­ning with the open­ing of the Stone Crock Restau­rant in 1975, he even­tu­ally trans­formed the vil­lage into an in­ter­na­tional tourist des­ti­na­tion. In 1981, he launched Mercedes Corp, which fo­cused on prop­erty de­vel­op­ment and pro­mot­ing tourism. Along with brother Ross Shantz, he amassed ex­ten­sive hold­ings in the vil­lage, in­clud­ing the farm­ers’ mar­kets.
