In the late 1840’s the Toronto-Sydenham Road (now Highway 10) was completed. This induced a few early settlers to move into Melancthon Township. Some 20 years later William Jelly, the son of an Irish immigrant, arrived and built several cabins and thus founded the town that would become Shelburne.
Mr. Jelly realized the growth potential of the area and approximately 5 years after he arrived he built the British Canadian Hotel which became commonly known as Jelly’s Tavern. In less than a year later a post office opened in the hotel and Jelly became the first postmaster. Members of the Canadian Parliament named the post office ‘Shelburne’ after the Earl of Shelburne. The hotel occupied the exact site where today Caravaggio’s Pharmacy is located. Jelly eventually sold the hotel, which then became known as Shelburne House.
Ever the visionary, in 1872 in anticipation of a railway from Toronto coming through, Jelly ordered a village survey. Because of the new railway the village experienced a huge population expansion from 70 villagers in 1869 to 750 villages in 1877. Just 2 years later Shelburne officially became a village and William Jelly was elected Reeve and held that post for 14 years. He was also elected to the Ontario Legislative Assembly whereas a Conservative he represented Dufferin County. How thrilling it must have been for Jelly to see his little community grow to about 1,000 citizens while he was still alive.
If you enjoy the theatre, then do not miss the concerts and plays at the beautiful 195 seat Grace Tipling Hall. The Town of Shelburne has four main parks all with baseball diamonds and soccer fields. Two of the four parks have children’s play areas and washroom facilities. The Shelburne Public Library is well stocked with books, reference material, DVD’s, music CDs, magazines, newspapers and has internet access on computers. The library has many programs including Children’s Story Time, Lego Club, and an Adult Book Club.
Other Community activities include the Winter ‘Shelbrrr’ Fest where you can join fun activities such as dogsledding and snow-castle building. Hockey and curling are also very popular winter sports. Shelburne has its own minor hockey league and a summer skateboard park. You will never be bored in active and exciting Shelburne.
Retirees looking to downsize are also taking advantage of the lower home prices leaving the city for a change of pace and taking advantage of selling their bigger city homes for a good dollar and purchasing a smaller home for much less than they could purchase in the city.
Shelburne hosts many Festivals and offers lots of community events such as plays at Grace Tipling Hall. Take in some music at the ever popular Heritage Music Festival, which used to be known as Fiddle Fest. They have an annual Farmers Market. They host a Santa Claus Parade, Sweets in the Streets in the fall, just to name a few. Besides all these wonderful things Shelburne has the great appeal of being close to Urban Centres. It is a short drive to Alliston and Orangeville and it’s an easy commute for those that work in the city, but want to live in a smaller community taking advantage of better home values.
