Brampton Heritage Tour
Gaze upon our historic architecture. Tread the very path walked upon by Bramptonians more than a century ago. Journey through time and experience Brampton’s past.
The City of Brampton has inherited a rich legacy of cultural heritage resources. Much of Brampton's heritage is linked to its historical roots as the “Flowertown of Canada” which has been revived and re-established under the City’s Flower City Strategy. Another important piece of Brampton's history is its past role as the capital or county seat of the former Peel County.
