History Of Erin Mills
European settlement of the area began in the very early 19th century. By the mid-19th century, the area was entirely agricultural land and served by the nearby villages of Erindale and Streetsville, which were located just to the east along the Credit River. Frogmore was the only settlement in Mississauga along the Toronto Hamilton stagecoach route!
Dundas Street was paved for automobile traffic in 1924. Beginning in the 1950s, a wealthy Canadian entrepreneur, E.P. Taylor, began buying farmland for future development by Canadian Equity and Development Limited, which owned Don Mills Development Corp. In 1969 Don Mills Development Corp. announced its plans to build a New Town in four phases.
The first two phases ("Erin Mills South" and "Erin Mills West") now form the nucleus of the Erin Mills community. The name Erinmills supposedly came from a combination of the founder's homeland, Ireland and Mills after Don Mills the other community planned by E.P Taylor.
