Maple, Ontario – Circa 1909

History

Maple was founded by the Noble and Rupert families in the early half of the 19th century. Until 1852 it was known as “Noble’s Corner,” before being renamed Rupersville after a beloved community doctor. Community lore credits the name “Maple” to the numerous Maple trees that lined the Keele street in the center of the village during the mid-19th century. The first settlers were German Lutherans migrating from Pennsylvania, but by 1825 a large influx of British immigrants had settled in Maple as well, and the community began to grow and diversify.

Maple continued to grow as the Ontario, Huron and Simcoe railway built a line through Maple. The accessibility by rail led to the growth of maple as an agricultural center, and the community became home to a major Ontario Department of Lands and Forests in the mid-1960’s. Housing development began at this time as well, but a 1962 fire damaged several houses and halted further housing development.

Housing development picked up in the 1980’s. Canada’s Wonderland, a major theme park, was opened in 1981. In the last 30 years Maple has seen increased development and population growth as people flock to the dynamic Neighbourhood.
