    Pine Bush was a community of immigrants from Mecklenburg in the 1850s who took up small holdings in "lot 6 of the third" concession of Beasley's Lower Block, south of Hespeler and east of Galt. In its heyday from the late 1840s to the 1870s, Pine Bush supported a store run by John Roos, and there was an inn or tavern on the south side of the Pine Bush Road, at the junction with the Hespeler-Galt Back Road.142 Children of the community could attend the log school old SS 19, a little farther west on the north side of Pine Bush Road in Concession 2. It was known as the Pine Bush School from 1848 until 1874, when the new brick schoolhouse on the same site was renamed Clearview.
