History and Heritage

We are surrounded by a remarkable built residential, industrial-commercial heritage and enjoy a rich, facinating history in Hintonburg. Our community has been the location of some cultural and technological events including the Canadian motion picture premiere by the Holland Brothers in 1896.

It behooves us to preserve and celebrate our unique neighnourhood with its mix of housing and commerial building stock that spans the decades from the 1850’s to the current in-fills and condominiums that are being constructed today.

We work with residents, business owners, city planners, elected officials and other interested parties to learn about and celebrate our inheritance by:

  • conducting research projects
  • leading walking tours
  • identifying and lobbying for potential heritage designations
  • working to ensure appropriate zoning for our neighbourhood.

If you have an interest in learning about or contributing to our knowledge of our community’s past and legacy heritage assets we would love to hear from you. Please contact us at info@hintonburg.com
