Settled circa 1821
Bolton is Caledon's largest urban centre with a population of just under 30,000. It is where you'll find the largest concentration of shopping and restaurants and Downtown Bolton's BIA (Business Improvement Area).
Downtown Bolton (at King and Queen St) is where the village of Bolton Mills was formed - named after George and James Bolton who built the first water-powered grist mill in 1822 on the Humber River. A number of the historic buildings remain, and Bolton is home to Caledon's first Heritage Conservation District.
Grab a meal or an ice cream and stroll along the river on the Humber Valley Heritage Trail or make your way up to Dick's Dam Park, a scenic gem.
Wondering about the history of this Village and some of its great 19th century buildings? Take a stroll back in time with a Self-Guided Heritage Walking Tour:
