Plaque Text

By 1825, six years after the first settlers came into this part of Toronto Township, a thriving community, containing grist and sawmills, a tannery and a distillery, had developed here on the Credit river. Named after Timothy Street, who began several of the early industries and donated the land for this cemetery, Streetsville had a population of 500 by 1837 and was the largest village in the Home District. While several industries, notably the Hyde mills, flourished during the 1840's, Streetsville lost its dominance in the region when it failed to obtain railway connections until 1879. It was incorporated as a Village, with about 1000 inhabitants, in 1858 and as a Town in 1962. Twelve years later it became part of the City of Mississauga.
