More Info & Historical Info: The new Krug Memorial Park in Chesley honours the Krug Bros., who ran a successful, family-owned furniture manufacturing business in this very location for over a hundred years before closing in 1987.

In 2014, the building was removed and the land was donated to the municipality. See what remains of the business in the beautiful setting next to the Saugeen River and don’t forget to look for artifacts from long ago.
