Tell us about the town of Shelburne
The Town of Shelburne is located at the intersection of Highway 10 and Highway 89. Like many communities in the region, the Town was first established in anticipation of the Toronto, Grey and Bruce Railway that passes through the community. The railway attracted residents and businesses to the area. William Jelly, the Town’s founder, built a tavern named the British Canadian House in the 1860s. Today, Shelburne is a diverse and vibrant community and the fastest growing Town in Ontario and the second-fastest growing Town in all of Canada.
