The township comprises the communities of Allen, Bannockburn, Cooper, Eldorado, Fox Corners, Hazzards Corners, Keller Bridge and Rimington.
Mills and ironworks gave initial stimulus to the community of Madoc. Following the discovery of gold-bearing quartz in 1866, the community prospered as an industrial centre.  Eldorado was the site of Ontario's first gold rush in August 1866. People soon came from all over North America to this area.
