More about the areas accommodations and tourism
Vankleeck's Hill grew from its humble beginnings a century before to become a thriving community in the 1890s. Electricity, telegraph, telephone, rail-progress arrived on the Hill with a bang, bringing new contacts from a larger world. New transportation lines gave local products a wider market. Local business and development received a vigorous boost.
Out of this prosperity came a desire for a singular identity. Incorporation, the legal weaning of a town from its township, was the next logical step in the development of Vankleek Hill. It was believed that a political identity, separate from that of West Hawkesbury Township, would attract more industry and enhance the town's image.
The first meeting of the town council of the new Corporation of Vankleek Hill was held on May 17th, 1897 with Colonel John Shields as Mayor. The public house of Simon Vankleeck had officially matured into a town.
Main Street was the focal point of this new community. It was home to many of the town's businesses and fine brick buildings. Take a walk along Main Street as it was in 1897. Although many of the buildings still exist today, a number of impressive buildings have disappeared.
