History of Maple
Maple's history begins in the first half of the 19th-century when the area was settled by the Noble family. Joseph Noble was the town's first postmaster, and it was named "Noble's Corner" in honor of him in 1852. The town's name was later changed to Rupertsville to honour another respected resident, Doctor Rupert.
Maple lived in the shadow of its larger neighbours until a rail line was built through the town by the Ontario, Huron, and Simcoe Railway. The line was bought by the Canadian National Railway in 1900 and the station was renamed to Maple.
Location and favourable development policies lead to the town's rapid growth thereafter.
