Born at Enosburg Falls, Vermont on 25 April 1852, most of his life was spent in Canada. He established the Deer Lodge Hotel in 1887 and operated it until 1916 when it was taken over as a convalescent hospital for the care of soldiers returning from the First World War. He and wife Addie E. Chadwick (?-?) had four children: Homer Chadwick (?-?), Herman Chadwick (?-?), Harold B. Chadwick (1886-?), and Nina Chadwick (1887-?, wife of E. Orns). He died at Kirkfield Park on 9 March 1917 and was buried in the Brookside Cemetery.
