The beginnings of our village neighbourhood, Highland Creek, dates back to 1796. Pioneers from the United States and British Isles built homes with the first Mill erected on the Creek in the Highlands, with the township incorporation taking place in 1850. Shortly after the incorporation, The Highland Creek and its village centre became the largest residential and business centre in the former Township of Scarborough. In 1852, Highland Creek was officially recognized as a community.
