The Village: Markham's Roots

Markham Village ... Then

At the turn of the century [1899-1900] the Village of Markham was a trhiving little community of about 950 people. Industry prospered. There were four wagon and carriage manufacturing establishments, a large woollen mill, two grist mills, and three blacksmith shops. Three hotels--the Tremont, the Franklin, and the Wellington--provided accommodation and refreshment, while about twenty-five stores and shops catered to the needs of the community. - Mary B. Champion, Editor, Markham Remembered: A Photographic History of Old Markham Township (Markham District Historical Society, 1988), 164

Markham Village ... Now

Markham is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Ontario, home to over 310,000 people covering 212 square kilometres of land. More than 400 companies are headquartered in Markham due to a well defined transportation and communication network, high quality facilities, a diverse and highly educated labour force and pro-business environment. With close to 900 high-technology and life sciences companies, Markham is Canada's High-Technology Capital. - About Markham: Statistics and Demographics, City of Markham website
