Mulmur Township is...........
considered a wee bit of heaven tucked away at the north-east corner of Dufferin County, about an hour’s drive north-west of the City of Toronto. Mulmur straddles the famous Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. The level, fertile fields above the escarpment provide a prime environment for the cultivation of a variety of crops including vast quantities of potatoes. The escarpment itself consists of steep slopes and river valleys surrounded by extensive forests. Below it, Mulmur descends into gently rolling farmlands and rural areas.
The area was initially settled by Europeans, primarily the Irish along with the English and Scottish, in the 1830’s. The Township of Mulmur was incorporated in 1851. In 2001 we celebrated our 150th birthday! Mulmur Township has changed considerably over the years and while it still encompasses some traditional agricultural family farms, has become a preferred area for weekend country retreats as well as home to a great many commuters.
We hope that you will use this website to keep informed of the issues involving your local government and community happenings.
