History

The Town of Oakville has three heritage societies that help to keep this lakeside town and heritage buildings in tip top shape. Oakville was founded in 1820 to build a marina community on Lake Ontario for shipbuilding and the shipping industry. Since then the community has grown while honouring the early development days. Visit the Fallen Soldiers, Georges Square and Memorial Park to pay respect to our fallen soldiers who gave their lives for our country. Oakville is proud of its museum that commemorates community members and documents historical moments in Oakville.
