A FEW INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT MILTON ....

The town of Milton evolved from a settlement by established by Jasper Martin along the Sixteen Mile Creek in 1818. Granted 100 acres of land by the Crown in 1820, he later built a grist mill along the creek and created a pond to power his mill. By 1837, the area had nearly 100 people and was named Mill Town, later to be known as Milton, which was incorporated into a Town in 1857. The two principal property owners of the young town were the Martins and the Fosters. The current site of Milton's town hall was donated from Mr. Hugh Foster.

In 1974, the present municipal structure was created when the Regional Municipality of Halton, replaced Halton County. The new town of Milton added parts of the former township of Esquesing, including the village of Campbellville and the northern sections of Oakville and Burlington.

With the addition of the Niagara Escarpment lands, tourism and recreation, heritage conservation has increased in importance. The Halton Region Museum which has a large number of historic agricultural buildings and the Halton County Radial Railway museum are located in Milton, as is Country Heritage Park (formerly the Ontario Agricultural Museum). Five large parks operated by Conservation Halton reside in the town and Mohawk Raceway is located near Campbellville.

POPULATION

Residential growth has increased substantially over the past several years due to completion of "The Big Pipe" project; designed to deliver water to the town from Lake Ontario. Milton received a tremendous amount of publicity following the release of the results of the 2006 Census, which indicated that Milton was the fastest growing community in Canada, with a 71.4% increase in population between 2001 and 2006. As of the mid-summer census in 2008, Milton's population had grown to 72,500 and showed no signs of slowing.

The population of Milton as of November 2nd 2010 is approximately 79,924. (Extrapolated from a population of 53,939 on May 24th 2008 and a population of 72,500 on February 11th 2010.)

LOCAL EVENTS

Every Labour Day weekend, the Milton Steam-Era takes place. The Steam-Era is an annual show produced by the "Ontario Steam and Antique Preservers Association" held at the Milton Fairgrounds. Steam engines from the 19th century puff their way around the grounds. The Milton Fall Fair is held every year on the last weekend of September. The Fall Fair has been a tradition in the town for over 60 years and takes place at the Milton Fairgrounds located in the historic downtown area of Milton.

The Farmer's Market operates on Main Street in downtown Milton on Saturdays from May through October. The section of Main Street that hosts the market is closed off to vehicles during the event. Local Farmers proudly display "picked fresh this morning" produce and the street comes alive with artisans and flower vendors.

Children's Miracle Network - Miracle Home Program

RE/MAX is the exclusive real estate partner to the Children's Miracle Network, a charitable organization consisting of 14 children's member hospitals in every province treating more than 2.6 million children each year. Throughout our twenty year partnership $44 million has been raised by RE/MAX agents who make a contribution with every home sold through the Miracle Home Program.

The RE/MAX Miracle Home Program allows real estate professionals like myself, the opportunity to make a donation to the Children's Miracle Network on behalf of each home that I list or sell.

I am extremely proud to be part of an organization that supports such a worthwhile cause and that I can help make a difference in the lives of these precious children and their families.
