Sunderland

SKU: 102

Sunderland, a charming rural community located an hour northeast of Toronto, was renamed from Jones Corners in 1871 to Sunderland after the Earl of Sunderland in England.

 

The Sunderland Town Hall, featured in this design, was originally constructed in 1871 of wood, and only later in 1906 rebuilt in brick.

 

In the early 1900’s the first floor was used as a farmers market and the second as an opera house.

 

First Nations, including the Mississauga, Anishinaabek, Algonquin, Iroquois and Ojibway, dating back over 10,000 years, inhabited the area as hunter gatherers.

 

In the 1820’s Sunderland developed around the Brock Hotel, with a growth spurt in 1871 when the Toronto and Nipissing Railway was constructed.

 

In current Sunderland celebrity news, it is rumoured that director James Merendino will be shooting a feature film starring none other than Tom Hardy right in Sunderland!
