History of Peterborough

History of Peterborough

PRE - 1615

Anishinaabeg

Peterborough is the native territory of the Anishinaabeg, a group of Indigenous people comprised of the Ojibwa, Odawa, Potawatami, Chippewa, Mississauga, Algonquin and Delaware communities who controlled the Great Lakes Basin since the late 1600s. Before the area was colonized, the Anishinaabeg called the area Nogojiwanong (no-gohj-wuh-nong), meaning “place at the foot of the rapids”, because of its connections to the Great Lakes Basin.

In 1615 Samuel de Champlain travels throughout southern Ontario, visiting Lake Chemong and portaging down present-day Chemong Road to the Otonabee River and into Bridgenorth for a short stay.

Sports & Athletics

Sports & Athletics

The Peterborough Petes were born in Peterborough on October 1st, 1956 as the TPT Petes, a farm team for the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens, making them the oldest team in the OHL. They became known as the Peterborough Petes Hockey Club in 1966-67, when Roger Neilson took over as coach, leading the team to many victories in his 10-year span with the team. In 1974 fans saw the birth of the official “Petes”, wearing the maroon and white and dropping the TPT and Montreal Canadiens colours. The Peterborough Petes won the Memorial Cup Championship for the first time in 1979 and have since become nine-time OHL Champions, have the most Memorial Cup appearances for a franchise (9), and the most Memorial Cup final game appearances (6), both CHL records. To date, one of the most significant accomplishments for the Petes, their fans, members of the organization and the City of Peterborough was hosting the Memorial Cup tournament in 1996 while celebrating the franchise’s 40th anniversary in the league. The club set standards achieving a 100% sell-out in each tournament game (4,429).

For a small community, Peterborough has become recognized globally as being a “Junior Hockey Factory”. The city has produced more National Hockey League players (150+) than any other city in the world. Notable alumni include Zack Kassian, Zach Bogosian, Eric & Jordan Staal, Chris Pronger, Steve Yzerman, Bob Gainey, Mike Ricci, Tie Domi, Ryan Spooner, and Nick Ritchie.
