Dating back to 1791, the Township of Wilmot, located in Waterloo, was first settled by Mennonites and Amish in he early 1800s, followed by Catholics, Lutherans, and Anglicans after Huron Road was opened by The Canada Land Company in 1828. The groups came together to clear the land, build roads, mills, shops, churches, schools and villages, including the roads known today as Erb’s Road, Snyder’s Road and Bleams Road. It wasn’t until 1840 when Wilmot became part of the District of Wellington and today, the sitting wall at the Oasis in the Centre represents the foundation of the 1850 Wilmot Township Hall and strong community first built by those early settlers.

Within the Township you’ll find rolling farmland, quaint village and bustling towns.
