The quaint Village of Churchville is located in the south west part of the City of Brampton bounded by Steeles Avenue to the north, Highway 407 to the south, Financial Drive to the west and the east side of the Credit River.
Forming part of a particularly scenic portion of the Credit River Valley this little neighbourhood is a sought after area for many.
Dominated by it's rural setting, the Village of Churchville has undergone significant changes since the first settlers started to inhabit the area almost 160 years ago.
The Credit River brought an abundance of water to the area and allowed for a thriving milling centre many years ago for a lumber industry to get started and also allowed farmers to farm wheat in the surrounding areas. Sadly, several economic downturns and then a disastrous fire took down the once prosperous centres, however some of the buildings still remain today.
A tiny oasis to it's residents, away from the surrounding hustle, but near enough to the conveniences of the neighbouring urban cities, the Village of Churchville boasts rural charm and character. There are narrow tree lined roads, small cemetery, bridge, and the beautiful scenic views with the focal point being the Credit River and it's steep valley, all gracing the small area.
Many people visit this reknown village that reflects another era, just slowly driving through admiring the architechural designs while others sit by the waters edge taking in the breathtaking beauty. So full of charm, many of the residents have resided here for generations and will continue to do so for years to come.
A Churchville Heritage Conservation District was first established in 1990 and to this day it remains Brampton's only heritage conservation district. The Heritage Council works hard to protect and preserve the heritage as well as enhance the character of the Village of Churchville.
Since the adoption of the Council in 1990 there have been numerous physical and policy changes including:
The construction of Highway 407
The dead end of Creditview Road at Highway 407
The introduction of municipal water service
The introduction of municipal sanitary sewers
The development of a new park on the west side of Creditview Road
The Heritage Committee keeps a watchful eye on the Village ensuring new residential buildings maintain an existing setback of adjacent properties, appropriate zoning and issues such as advising that garages do not form part of the front facade and that they are located towards the rear of the buildings, to name just a few.
Churchville is designated as "Village Residential", a designation that only applies to one other area besides Churchville and that is Huttonville Estates to the North. The intent is to maintain the unique and historical character of the villages. So far it is working and because of this success the Village of Churchville is today a very exclusive area for the discriminating Buyer to call "home".
