Is Vaughan a Good Place to Live?

For those who are not familiar with the city of Vaughan, it is a great place to live, work, and play.

History of Vaughan

In 1850 Vaughan became incorporated as a Township, with a population of approximately 6000. Once a farmland community, it has now grown into the fifth-largest city in the GTA. Just north of Toronto, in the Municipality of York, it has become the 17th largest city in Canada.

Vaughan’s 5 Communities

Concord

Concord Vaughan

In 1853 the Northern Railway was built. The station located in Concord was known as the Thornhill Railway Station. In 1951, when Highway 401 opened, Concord began to become Vaughan’s industrial district. Residential areas were developed in the 1950’s east of Keele Street.

Glen Shields was located in the southeast and another development west of Dufferin. In the 2000’s Dufferin Hill was built. It was located near Rutherford Rd and Dufferin St. During the 70’s and ’80s, on Highway 7, east of Keele street, industrial buildings, and a plaza were constructed.

In 1977 Highway 407 was constructed and opened 3 new interchanges in Vaughan, allowing access to several major highways from Concord. As a result, many multinational and domestic company headquarters are located in Concord.

Kleinburg

Kleinburg Vaughan

Kleinburg is a historic village located between 2 areas of the Humber River, with highway 27 on the west and Steman’s Mill Road on the east. Kleinburg is historically known for its sawmills and gristmills.

John Nicholas Kline purchased 83 acres of land in 1848 then divided the land into 8 smaller lots, which began the “village” of Kleinburg.  Kleinburg really began to grow during the 1860s and the 1870s and became popular for farmers and merchants to stop there while traveling to and from Toronto.

In 1966 the famous McMichael Canadian Art Gallery opened directly south of the village. The Group of Seven original members are buried in a small cemetery located on the McMichael property.

Today Kleinburg is surrounded by beautiful picturesque scenery lined trails, many quaint boutiques, and great restaurants and cafes. It is known as a great heritage destination.

Maple

Maple Vaughan

Once known as a swamp area, the village began to grow when a railway line was built that went through Maple. There were approximately 100 residences in Maple by 1904. These homes were mainly owned by retired farmers that owned businesses within the community.

By 1928, Maple had a population of approximately 2000 people. Now a heritage church, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, established in 1832, was the very first church in Maple. Maple United Church was the first physical church built-in 1870.

Maple airport was located southeast of Major MacKenzie Drive and Jane St. and was in operation from 1955 to 1987. The airport was closed due to increased development and urbanization in Maple.

Thornhill

Thornhill Vaughan

Located along the east side and west side of Yonge Street, Thornhill is actually half the City of Markham and half the City of Vaughan. Yonge Street began as a military road that connected Lake Ontario to Lake Simcoe. It was cleared to run from Toronto to Holland Landing.

Thornhill constantly grew between 1830 and 1848, with the development of businesses between John Street and Centre Street on Yonge St. With a population of approximately 700 people, Thornhill was considered the largest community north of Toronto on Yonge St. Today Thornhill is a thriving community with many large homes.

Woodbridge

Woodbridge Vaughan

Woodbridge, once named Burwick,  was developed around the Humber River to provide transportation and a power source that helped with its economic growth. Abell Agricultural Works, producing agricultural equipment that was steam-powered,  contributed largely to Woodbridge’s growth beginning in 1862.

By 1882, Woodbridge’s population grew to over 1000 people. Woodbridge was then incorporated as a Municipality. In 1971, the town of Vaughan was formed with Vaughan Township and Woodbridge joining together. 10 subdivisions were built between 1951 and 1956 due to the increase in immigration.

Woodbridge has experienced rapid growth ever since.
