About early Caledon

Early settlements in the townships (which eventually amalgamated to make up the Town of Caledon) developed around water-powered mill sites on the Credit and Humber rivers, and at various crossroads. 

The arrival of the Toronto Grey & Bruce, Hamilton & Northwestern and Credit Valley railways in the 1870s spurred further settlements at various junctions.  Development was also influenced by the area's major landforms, including the Peel Plain, the Niagara Escarpment and the Oak Ridges Moraine. 

While some historic hamlets have disappeared over time, Caledon's present-day communities continue to reflect early settlement patterns.

The Walking Tours

We invite you to print off our tours. They will guide you through historic villages throughout Caledon.  The list below offers self-guided tours in eight villages.

We have created a mobile version for Mono Mills and will add more in the near future.

Enjoy.

 

Thanks to Heritage Caledon.
