Harrow is a community in the town of Essex, Essex County located along County Road 20. Harrow was first surveyed in 1824, but was not formally incorporated as a town until 1930. Harrow’s initial claim-to-fame was from an important connection to Canadian Club Whiskey. In the late 19th century, Hiram Walker built a railway that ran through the town to run grains across the county to the distillery in Windsor. These days, Harrow is popular for its agricultural festivals, wineries, and warm, family-friendly community.
