Built Heritage | Towns & Villages

Located on the northwest portion of Caledon, the Village of Alton is just 10 minutes away from Orangeville to the north and a short southwest drive to the Village of Erin.

Incorporated in the early 1850s Alton once had 8 power dams that powered the many mills in the area. This properous timeframe would explain the abundance of century homes in Alton today. Some have been gutted and rebuilt while others are still waiting for an industrious person with vision to bring them back to their former charm. Alton is home to a thriving arts community courtesy of the Alton Mill Arts Centre. Those in search of peace and relaxation need look no further than The Millcroft Inn & Spa an upmarket overnight destination for those looking for a spectacular meal, quiet surroundings and the opportunity to relax in the outdoor hot springs or the luxurious day spa. Explore the neighbourhood with a stop at Ray’s 3rd Generation Bistro Bakery which offers exceptional gourmet meals at prices that will make you a “regular” in addition to its baked delicacies. Local musical talent, a casually elegant ambiance & the option to sit outside in the private, grassy courtyard make dining at Ray’s a memorable experience you won’t soon forget.
