Uxbridge Historic Homes

Uxbridge is located on the ancestral home of the Anishaanabe Nations (Ojibway, Cree, Huron, Wendat, Algonquin, Chippewa, Mississaugas). The first settlers in the area were Quakers who started arriving in 1806 along with other British Loyalists following the American revolutionary wars. Most settlers to the Township of Uxbridge came from the Catawissa area of Pennsylvania. The Uxbridge Friends Meeting House which overlooks the town from Quaker Hill was built in 1820, and is the community's oldest building. The Toronto and Nipissing Railroad arrived in Uxbridge in 1871, and for over a decade Uxbridge was the headquarters of the railway. Shortly after the arrival of the railway, Uxbridge became a village in 1872, and reached town status in 1885. You can enjoy and learn all the Uxbridge Historic Homes by following the Uxbridge Walking Tour Brochure. Unfortunately some of the Uxbridge Historic Homes have been lost over the years.  One example is Joseph Goulds stately manor that once stood where our town hall is now.   You can also learn about some of these homes as we add them to our blog,
