Your Oakville and Bronte Community Expert
Founded in 1834, Bronte Village was established as a small fishing village where the Twelve Mile Creek met the vast waters of Lake Ontario…
Bronte Harbour Village is Oakville’s waterfront destination. Situated midway between the GTA (population 5million plus), and the Golden Horseshoe and the U.S. border, makes for easy access from the QEW (Hwy 25 South/Bronte Road) and Lakeshore Road. Direct access to the harbour combined with shopping and dining attract visitors seeking a more relaxed getaway.
Bronte’s first harbor was built upon the last of the traditional lands of what we now know as the Mississaugas of New Credit First Nation and completed 22 years after the Village of Bronte was founded in 1834. For thousands of years, this waterway was used by the original inhabitants as a means of transportation, source of agriculture, hunting and fishing for sustenance and commerce. After European settlement, it became a commercial shipping center for grain and timber. Halton County farmers shipped their wheat by wagon to three storage warehouses at the mouth of the Twelve Mile Creek. The grain was destined for Great Britain. In 1850 alone, farmers shipped over 70 thousand bushels from Bronte Harbour. By 1856, Bronte was a busy Lake Ontario port, exporting wheat, building ships, and developing a thriving commercial fishery and stonehooking industry.
Today Bronte is an exclusive lakeside community with properties that range from charming historical homes to luxurious waterfront developments. Whether you seek a family home or a trendy condo, Bronte suits every lifestyle. Perfectly positioned between Toronto and Hamilton on the lake, Bronte provides an idyllic escape from big city life while not being too far away.
