HistoryEdit

Addington Highlands was formed in 1998 as an amalgamation of the former townships of Ashby, Denbigh, Effingham, Abinger, Anglesea and Kaladar.

Addington Highlands contains Kaladar Pine Barrens Conservation Reserve and is near Puzzle Lake Provincial Park. This area was first settled following the construction of the Addington Road in 1857. It was originally named Scouten after its first postmaster. The old CPR rail bed passing through the town has become part of the Trans Canada Trail.
