“Stoufferville” became an established community with a local sawmill and gristmill to service farmers in the early 1800’s. The town was named after it’s founder; Abraham Stouffer in 1804 but was later changed to Stouffville in 1832. As the town attracted more families and businesses, Stouffville became an incorporated village in 1877. The town then amalgamated with Whitchurch Township in 1971 to create a synergistic community. A recent major archeological discovery was made in town in 2003. They uncovered a Huron village from the 16th century consisting of longhouses, palisades and thousands of artifacts that would have supported a community of more than 2000 people. These artifacts and documents are well preserved at the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum and The Latcham Gallery.
Stouffville is an ideally located town northeast of Toronto. It has all of the amenities that any individual or family could wish for. You can raise your children at sought after schools while running your own business or commuting to a nearby business community. Accessibility is increasing everyday with additional train and bus services from Go Transit and municipal services. As a result, house prices are on the rise. Home building has flourished in Stouffville for the past ten years and will continue until there is no more space. At that point, you will see the town build upwards via condos. With all of these changes happening to what was once a small town, you would think that it may not be a desirable place to move to but you would be wrong. Stouffville is a proud township that protects its heritage and embraces the longevity of its culture.
