Explore Brampton's Rich Cultural Heritage

Brampton remained almost entirely untouched by European settlers until the early 19th century. In the 1830's, William Buffy established a tavern near the intersection of Queen and Main Streets, which lent the name "Buffy's Corners" to the area. In 1834, the village was renamed Brampton by John Elliott and William Lawson, two staunch Methodists from Brampton, England. The arrival of the Grand Trunk Railway triggered an economic boom, and the population grew substantially. New industries cropped up, including market gardening, shoe production, and banking. Brampton was incorporated as a town in 1873. It became a city a century later in 1974. Brampton's population continues to grow, attracting people from all around the world. It is one of Canada's prime spots for newcomers to the country.
