for exact location and directions to our station: 19 Railway Street, Uxbridge.
Uxbridge is situated in a beautiful valley on the northern slope of the Oak Ridges Moraine, about 64km northeast of Toronto, Ontario. Uxbridge has much to offer by way of recreation, entertainment, heritage and culture, a thriving arts community and the opportunity to participate in any one of the countless volunteer organizations that actively contribute to the quality of life in this vibrant community that we are all so proud of.
Uxbridge became a village in 1872, and reached town status in 1885. In 1954, Uxbridge became the second town in Canada to receive an official coat-of-arms which is displayed on the front of the Music Hall. The latter building has been restored, and is a centre for drama and musical performances.
The Uxbridge-Scott Museum provides a focal point for the Township's history. Their annual Steam Threshing Days will be held again this year at the end of August. Dorothy Brown's Country Heritage Museum is also a popular place for visitors.
The Thomas Foster Memorial Temple, erected in 1935-36 by the former mayor of Toronto, is situated a short distance north of town, as is the former home of L.M. Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables. She lived in the area from 1911 to 1926, and wrote half of her books there. Visit the Leaskdale home of Lucy Maud Montgomery, now a provincial historic site.
Discover the heritage architecture of downtown Uxbridge while enjoying nine hiking trails in and around the town. View google map for exact location and directions to this vibrant community of which we are all so proud.
