Sarnia, Ontario

On the right, the post office in Sarnia, Ontario, just across the St. Clair River from Port Huron, Michigan. English settlers wanted to name the town “Buenos Aires” while Scottish settlers championed “New Glascow.” “Sarnia” was the tie-breaker. Famous Sarnians include James Doohan, who played Scotty on Star Trek, and Dave Madden, who played Ruben Kincaid on The Partridge Family.
