Bowmanville is the largest community in the Municipality of Clarington. It is approximately 75 kilometres east of Toronto, and about 15 kilometres east of Oshawa, nestled along highway 2, just north of Lake Ontario.
Bowmanville is considered a part of the Greater Toronto Area. The region has recently experienced large growth and development due to its ideal access to the nearby urban centres along highway 401.
Bowmanville has a great diversity of amenities in town and nearby, while still maintaining its small town charm, making it an increasingly attractive community to raise a family.
Bowmanville’s history began with the arrival of the first European settlers in 1794. Three loyalist families from the U.S. were the first settlers to arrive, the Burks, the Conants and the Trulls. The village grew and prospered attracting not only settler families but industry too. Mills, furniture factories, tanneries, brick yards, evaporator plants, hotels, inns, and mercantile establishments were all a part of the growing industry in Bownmanville.
Some of Bownmanville’s most famous industries include: The Dominion Organ and Piano Factory, The Goodyear Rubber Plant, The Bownmanville Foundry, and The Cream of Barley Mill. The goods from these places were shipped worldwide.
The Bowmanville Museum holds the rich history of the town, and the story unfolds through a photography collection.
