Gooderham House
Village of Meadowvale celebrates 175th Anniversary
While celebrating 175 years, residents are still trying to protect their past
Drive into the village past the sign which reads "Meadowvale Village, Since 1836, First Heritage District in Ontario," and you will be transported back in time. 175 years ago, to be exact. On September 17, the village celebrated their 175th anniversary with tours of historic buildings, heritage exhibits, Irish music and dancing and the streets were transformed like a movie set with vintage cars and townsfolk decked out in their Sunday best.r. 



Port Credit
Town of Port Credit celebrates 175th Anniversary
The original Ojibwa name translates as River of Advance Payment
The Credit river is the backbone of the City of Mississauga and the very heart and soul of the town of Port Credit. The name was bestowed upon the still waters by a French fur dealer who met with the Ojibwa fur trappers early each spring. Translated literally it’s the “River of Advance Payment”, but that doesn’t quite have a ring to it, does it? Today we call it the Credit River.



Clarkson
Clarkson Celebrates 200th Anniversary
Clarkson is home to both of Mississauga's Museums
Warren Clarkson and Timothy Street would be shocked to see how different the present-day Clarkson and Streetsville are from the two settlements that dotted Lake Ontario and the Credit River in their time. A walk through both villages will reveal a treasure trove of historical locations and properties for those eager to learn more about their histories.
