Kilbride History Group Logo

The new logo for the Kilbride History Group speaks to the development and history of the villages in north-west Nelson Township, found in the County of Halton in the province of Ontario. The trillium is recognized as a symbol of the province. The stream, known by a variety of names such as Brittas Creek and in recent times, Kilbride Creek, was the reason that villages could be economically supported in close proximity to one another. The pine tree speaks to the early lumbering industry that was an economic basis for these settlements. The stream also gave rise to a large number of mills that supported the settlement of the area. Lumber mills, grist mills, woolen mills, etc. provided not only goods but employment as well.
