Burnhamthorpe,Dixie,Summerville

These three villages were once thriving communities in the eastern part of Toronto Township. Burnhamthorpe, at the junction of Burnhamthorpe and Dixie Roads, originally called Sandy Hill or Sand Hill, was renamed by John Abelson for his birthplace in England. Dixie, in the area of Cawthra and Dundas, previously known as Sydenham, was named in honour of famous Erindale physician, Dr. Beaumont Dixie. Very little trace is left of the hamlet of Summerville, once a stop on the Credit Valley Railway, which was located at Dundas Street and Etobicoke Creek.
