Bronte

HISTORY

Bronte was founded in 1834 when it was first established as a small fishing village where Twelve Mile Creek met Lake Ontario. The first harbour was finished in 1856 and became a central location for all activities. This neighbourhood began to expand when the freight carriers changed to steam operations. In 1962, Bronte merged with the former Township of Trafalgar to form the Town of Oakville, along with several other formally independent communities. Over the years, many new stores opened to serve the growing community of residents. To this day, there are still several organizations and groups working to preserve Bronte’s history.

OVERVIEW

Bronte is located between Third Line and Burlock Dr., south of Rebecca St. and north of Lake Ontario with Twelve Mile Creek running through it. This is a high tourist area because of the Bronte Marina and the pubs and restaurants nearby. This neighbourhood also features Bronte Village Mall, several waterfront parks, senior recreation centre and an outdoor stage. There is easy access from this area to the QEW and GO train service.
