Crieff

The village of Crieff was formerly known as Fraserville. Crieff was given its original name by the family whose farm the village essentially originated from. By 1871, the village's population had reached 50.  Crieff  became a thriving community with two blacksmith workshops, two stores, a hotel licensed to sell liquor, a shoemaker, a church with a minister, and various dwellings. Around 1882, The Kerracher Hotel, the popular local hotspot, caught fire and was destroyed. To add to the hardship of losing The Kerracher Hotel, during the fire that destroyed the hotel, the blaze carried over and also burned down the Temperance Hall. Although it was difficult for Crieff to thrive after losing two buildings that were essential to the village's vitality, over time the village recovered. Today, Crieff is a beautiful and thriving community.
