Rural Burlington

History:

Rural Burlington is shaped by the Niagara Escarpment a massive land formation that was carved from the aftermath of the last ice age which saw the retreat of massive glaciers some 11,700 years ago. The awe-inspiring Niagara Escarpment provides the backdrop for the mostly rural north part of Burlington. By the mid-1800s Rural Burlington was dotted with hamlets including Lowville, Highville, Kilbride, and Cumminsville. The pioneer lifestyle began to decline in the early 1900s when families began a slow but steady migration to the City.

Overview:

Rural Burlington is the large northern part of Burlington, mostly consisting of farmland, green space, and undeveloped land. Residents appreciate the peaceful country living here, while still enjoying easy access to amenities. The hamlets of Kilbride and Lowville are the two urban centers situated within Rural Burlington.
