History of Inglewood,Ontario,Canada

Inglewood, Ontario,Canada has an interesting history because of the many individuals and groups who settled the area.

Inglewood, was the name finally chosen for the little hamlet south of Caledon. The place went through many names before arriving at this name which was given by Thomas White, the member of Parliament for Cardwell, and named by him after a place in England. The difficulty in choosing a name arose due to many of the former names already existing for towns elsewhere , and thus there was trouble with the naming of the post office. In Chronological order the names included: Corbett's Mills, Riverdale, Sligo , Sligo Junction, and Riverdale Junction.

The town had it's beginnings due to Mr. Corbett who built a carding and fulling mill on the Credit River in the 1850s. The mill was taken over by his son-in-law, David Graham and his wife Margaret Graham in 1871. Some of the Graham family still live in Inglewood, and used to run the fiberglass company which is housed in the old woolen mill. Two railways (CNR and CPR) were built through Inglewood shortly after the mill arrived. Graham family members are now building new homes and developing Inglewood Village Estates.

The Hamilton and Northwestern Railway arrived in 1877 and the Credit Valley Railway in 1879. The Credit Valley Railway still runs through Inglewood, though it does not make the stops it used to make at Ferndale, Inglewood, Forks of the Credit, Cataract, Alton and Melville on it's way from Streetsville to Orangeville. The Credit Valley Railway actually was bought by Ontario & Quebec Railway Company, which became the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Hamilton & Northwestern Railway which went from Hamilton to Collingwood via Terra Cotta, Boston Mills, Cheltenham, Inglewood, Caledon East, and Palgrave.

This rail track has been removed and developed into a walking and cycling trail called the Caledon Rail Trail. Before becoming a walking trail the rail line was sold to the Grand Trunk Railway and this in turn was bought by the Canadian National Railway. Both the woolen mill and the quarries in Inglewood benefited from the existence of the railways. Inglewood's "union station" burnt down in 1910 and was eventually rebuilt. However both the station and the water tower in Inglewood were demolished in 1972. Much of the old Inglewood style architecture can still be seen walking down the old streets in the "A" shaped roofs at the front of some of the old homes.
