Bronte Heritage Trail

Explore Bronte Village and discover our rich history and culture on the Bronte Heritage Trail. This new project was designed to present the unique roots of our community in an accessible manner, and promote Canada’s 150th year of Confederation. Funded in large part by the Government of Canada, along with our corporate sponsors Catch Hospitality and Boomers Sporting Adventures.
