Caledon Heritage Walking Tours

Take a step back in time and explore our early settlements through self-guided Heritage Walking Tours in: Alton, Belfountain, Bolton, Caledon East, Caledon Village, Cheltenham, Inglewood, Mono Mills and Terra Cotta.

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.

The Walking Tours

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

The land which forms the Town of Caledon is part of the Ajentance Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit. We acknowledge all of the indigenous people who have walked this land in the past and who walk it today. We are grateful to have the opportunity to live and work on this land, and by doing so, we give respect to our first nations.
