Beaverton is a popular destination for tourists and is known for its beautiful beaches, parks, and outdoor recreational opportunities.

Beaverton History

The Beaverton area was originally inhabited by the Chippewas and was later part of the Huron-Wendat confederacy.

The first European settlers arrived in the area in the early 1800s. In the 1830s William Thorpe, built a sawmill on the Beaverton River. A settlement grew around the mill and was named after the nearby Beaverton Creek.

The arrival of the Port Hope, Lindsay and Beaverton Railway in 1877 helped to fuel the growth of Beaverton. The railway brought goods and people to the town and also  made it easier for farmers to transport their crops to market.

By the early 1900s, Beaverton was a bustling community and supported a variety of businesses and services, including several hotels, a newspaper, and a movie theater.
