Streetsville: The Village in the City

 

Timothy Street was granted 1,000 acres of land in the township and in 1824 the area became known as Streetsville. His family home was built near his mill site, which still stands on the banks of the Credit River.

The backbone of the community was its five major mills located along the fast flowing Credit River. The spirit, hard work, and enthusiasm of those first community leaders inspire today’s shopkeepers to open their doors every morning in the heart of Mississauga. The balance between the historical reverence and modern retail stores and services makes Streetsville truly the most inviting Village in the City.

Streetsville is the home of the annual Founders Bread & Honey festival which is held on the first weekend of June, and the annual Mississauga Santa Claus Parade.
