Located only 40 kilometres west of Toronto, Halton Hills is a community with 200 years of settlement and agricultural history. The Niagara Escarpment runs through the town from southwest to northeast, contributing to its natural beauty and hilly landscape. The town of Halton Hills was established in 1974 through the amalgamation of the former Towns of Georgetown and Acton along with several other neighbouring areas and hamlets. One of these hamlets was famously the home of Lucy Maud Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables, from 1926 to 1935. Known for its abundance of agriculture and conservation lands, the town of Halton Hills is a great place for anyone who loves the outdoors.
