Old Oakville includes Kerr Village and West Harbour the area extends from Lake Ontario (south) up to the QEW (north) and from Dorval Drive (west) over to Chartwell Road (east)
Oakville was originally purchased by the Crown from the Indigenous Mississaugas in 1805 and the first British immigrants came to the area in 1807. In 1827 the land was auctioned off to Colonel William Chisholm who established Oakville as a ship building town and a port of entry in to Canada. William Chisholm built his own home ‘The Erchless Estate’ overlooking Lake Ontario and the newly established harbour. The historic buildings at the bottom of Navy Street are now part of Oakville’s community museum.
Old Oakville is one of Oakville’s prettiest neighbourhoods. There’s a mix architectural styles from old heritage homes to new custom builds. Stunning mansions grace the waterfront and downtown condominiums provide a turn key lifestyle for down-sizers and busy professionals. The streets are lined with mature trees and beautiful gardens can be seen just about everywhere. High ranking schools most often attract younger families while the ability to walk to restaurants, stores and Town Square draw the older crowd.
