Beaverton, Ontario - Neighbourhood Information

 

   Beaverton

Community Information

Settlers, predominantly Scots, began arriving in Thorah Township in the 1820's. Around Calder's mill grew the village of Milton (later called Beaverton) which, in time, had grist, flour, saw and Woollen mills, a tannery, a foundry, tradesmen and stores. Churches and schools also appeared.

historical photo In 1870 Beaverton became the terminus, for a time, of Port Hope, Lindsay, Beaverton Railway, and in 1884 an incorporated village.

Population growth in this area slowed down in the late 1800's with movement to larger centres and to Western Canada.

By 1900 Lake Simcoe's transportation advantages had waned, but it's recreation benefits increased. The coming of a second railway, the Canadian National, boosted tourism.

historical photo The 20th Century has seen many changes. Lakeview Manor opened in 1967. Today Seeburn Division of Ventra Group Inc. is the largest employer. Beaverton, and it's 5500 residents, provide services for the surrounding countryside, the tourist industry, and a growing retirement and commuter community.
