Unveiling of Historic Archdekin Heritage Home Event Saturday May 3rd at noon.
In the 1860’s at the corner of Mayfield Rd and Dixie Rd, Peter Archdekin and a small group of settlers established the Hamlet of Mayfield Village. With only a few families and 50 people, Mayfield village was the center of their farming community and encompassed everything they required- a blacksmith, general store, a school, a post office and a hotel.
To honour the vision and rich history of those early settlers, on Saturday May 3rd 2014 at noon, the builders of Brampton’s newest village community, Mayfield Village, will unveil a heritage home restoration and plaque dedicating the last remaining building of the original Mayfield Village, The Peter Archdekin Farmhouse.
TheArchdekin Farmhouse plays an important role in Brampton’s history and one of its descendants; James (Jim) Archdekin, a direct relative of the aforementioned Peter, was one of Brampton’s most popular Mayors and held the position from 1969-1982. He played a prominent role in shaping the city that Brampton has become today.
Current Mayor Susan Fennell and Councillor John Hutton will be in attendance, as well as other Brampton city officials. Festivities will take place at the current presentation centre for Mayfield Village at 4585 Mayfield Road, just East of Dixie Rd., in Brampton at noon. The event will feature special opportunities for potential homebuyers including new releases of homes and lots, individual builder incentives, and giveaways.Attendees are encouraged to come before noon to avoid disappointment.
The builders of the new Mayfield Village are recognizing this grand familial heritage by offering homes that carry that same sense of adoration and devotion to the area; Towns, semis and single detached homes range from 1,484-3,441 square feet, and start from the mid $300’s.
The 5 Mayfield Village developers consisting of Aspen Ridge Homes, Countrywide Homes, Greenpark Homes, Marycroft Homes, and Regal Crest Homes have continued the vision of the early settlers with a master planned community that harkens back to those simpler times of village life. Mayfield Village will have a distinct urban feel with the main street, Inspire Boulevard, running through the development that serves the community with various shops and retailers –all within walking distance.
The entire Mayfield Village community will stretch from Heart Lake Rd all the way to Airport Rd, bordered to the North by Mayfield Rd and the South by Countryside Rd., making it one of Brampton’s largest developments. Walking and biking trails will make this community pedestrian friendly connecting the development’s many parks, schools and preserved natural wooded areas, while its proximity to Highway 410 and its transit infrastructure, makes all of the GTA accessible. Employment lands on West side of Highway 410, will feature prestige office space and on the East side of Highway 410 an auto mall, commercial and retail businesses will create over 7,500 jobs in total for the future 20,000 residents of Mayfield Village.
