Uptown Core was originally part of Trafalgar Township which amalgamated with the Village of Oakville and Bronte Village in 1962, forming a new municipality called the Town of Oakville. Prior to amalgamation Trafalgar Township was an agricultural community. The farming families that settled in what is now Uptown Core are commemorated in the form a heritage memorial interpretive plaque in Memorial Park which is the central hub of the Uptown Core neighborhood. These first settlers included the Jones, Munn, Hays, Sullivan and Fleming families that occupied Concession1 lots 13, 14 and 15 in Trafalgar Township.
