Shelburne, Ontario

Shelburne, located on the northwestern edge of the Greater Toronto Area, retains both its spectacular natural beauty and charming small town heritage. Once known as Jelly Corners named after William Jelly, who established the British Canadian Hotel there in 1865, the Canadian Parliament renamed it after the Earl of Shelburne, one of Canada’s earliest peacekeepers. The community first developed in the late 1840’s with the construction of the Toronto-Sydenham Road. In 1872, Jelly and his brother John had a survey of a village plot made with the anticipation of the arrival of the Toronto, Grey and Bruce Railway.

Every August Shelburne’s Old Time Fiddle Contest and parade attracts fans from all over North America.
