A Pioneering Spirit
The first settlers arrived in the village in the early 1820s. The early pioneers were Scots, Irish, and United Empire Loyalists. For the Scots, the hills, rocks, woods, and streams of Caledon were reminders of their homeland.
What are now known as Hurontario Street and Highway 10, were opened as a rough sleigh tracks by the government.
Early settlements in the townships developed around water-powered mill sites on the Credit and Humber rivers, and at various crossroads. A post office was started in 1838, and by 1877, the area was bustling and a thriving railway was built through the village. The present-day Caledon Trailway meanders across its abandoned lands.
Today, many of Toronto's wealthiest citizens own large country estates in the area, among them many members of the Eaton Family, Norman Jewison, Elton John and the inventors of the board game Trivial Pursuit. Visitors come for the landscape and to tour the many quaint of craft and antique shops. Caledon still embodies a great deal of the pioneer spirit and revels in its elegant contemporary country lifestyle, a short distance from the sprawling urban metropolis of Toronto.
