Description: A plan of the hamlet of Churchville taken from the 1877 Historical Atlas of Peel County. Churchville was established about 1815 by Amaziah Church, who was born in Sheffield, Berkshire County, Massachusetts, in 1765. Church built a grist mill in the area on the Credit River. A village grew up from there with a slaughter house, tannery, school house, several churches and small hotels, and a cemetery which is still operating, and in which Amaziah Church is buried. Although Churchville was situated in the northern part of Toronto Township it was amalgamated into the new City of Brampton in 1974 by the Act which created the Regional Municipality of Peel. Churchville is now a Heritage Conservation District according to the terms of the Ontario Heritage Act. Description as February 2012.
