The village of Mount Albert was settled in 1821 and has retained its historic look while seamlessly incorporating the growth of thriving businesses and subdivisions . Perfectly placed within 15 minutes of Newmarket, Uxbridge, Sutton and Stoufville, and a mere 45 minutes from the city of Toronto, Mount Albert residents can take advantage of their proximity to everything they could possibly need.
The land on which Mount Albert would eventually be settled was purchased from the governing council of Upper Canada by Samuel and Rufus Birchard, Quakers from Vermont. The area experienced almost continuous growth and now has a population of about 3,500.
This friendly village prides itself on having a strong volunteer community and boasts a number of clubs and organizations appropriate for all ages, some of which have been active since the early 1900’s. Whether you are interested in the horticulture group or helping with the annual Sports Day & Spring Fair, there is a club waiting for you. In addition to traditional clubs there are also special interest clubs dedicated to various projects. Recently completed is the Iron Horse Time Capsule, a 7.5 foot tall horse-shaped structure that was designed and built by local artists. Another club recently completed the Millenium Garden Project, a beautiful garden located at the western entrance of Mount Albert.
If you enjoy the outdoors you will want to visit the Ponderosa Campground and Trailer Park and take advantage of their clean facilities, friendly atmosphere and recreation program. If you enjoy the outdoors while listening to the clip-clop of hooves you’ll definitely want to check out the Harrogate Hills Riding School, where they have horses to accommodate riders of all levels.
