Unveiling of commemorative sign


The Pallett family arrived in Mississauga in 1858 and began an agricultural tradition. We will honour the Pallett family by renaming a portion of Etobicoke Valley to Pallett Green by placing a sign and bench on the site of their original farm. Pallett Green is a portion of protected land from south of Dundas Street to Lake Ontario.
