Tecumseh, Ontario

Tecumseh (2001 population 25,105) is a town on Lake St. Clair[?] near Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Originally known as Ryegate when it was first settled in 1792, Tecumseh was renamed in 1912 after the Shawnee tribe leader of the same name. It was officially incorporated as a town in 1921. Tecumseh had a large French population, and when nearby Windsor started to grow into the area, considerable angst between the English and French developed.

In 1999 Tecumseh annexed two outlying townships.

Food processing is a major industry in Tecumseh.
