Bolton’s Bicentennial will be celebrated on June 4th and 5th in the downtown core.
On June 5th, 1821, George Bolton purchased a 200 acre mill site, becoming the first settler in this part of the Humber River valley. His flour mill, built at the bend in what is now Mill Street, was the catalyst for the community of Bolton.
The Bicentennial celebration was posted a year due to Covid.
The Bolton Bicentennial Committee, with Albion Bolton Historical Society members Heather Broadbent and Isabelle Bottoms as Co-Chairs are organizing special events some of which are still evolving.
So mark your calendars and plan to join in a Community Birthday Party marking Bolton’s 200th Birthday!
