About Old Thornhill

Old Thornhill takes its name from Benjamin Thorne who settled here in 1820. The settlement became known as Thorne’s Mills, and subsequently Thorne’s Hill, and finally Thornhill. Spanning east from Yonge St, to Bayview Ave, and Grandview Ave, north till John St. Today, in Old Thornhill along Yonge Street, over one hundred historic buildings stand as reminders of Thornhill’s past. Every year we celebrate our community by hosting the Thornhill Village (Wheatsheaf) Festival which was started in 1977 to draw attention to the “Old Town”.
