Brantford can boast of being one of the grandest cities of old Canada, and with its strategic location on the Grand River, it was once the 3rd largest industrial center in the country. Our downtown, where the longest stretch of pre-Confederate buildings in the province still stands today, is the legacy of the immense wealth and stability that was once Brantford's hallmark. As Brantford's success and population grew our downtown experienced all the side effects of urban sprawl. While everyone's sights were fixated on the new 'suburban' way of life with shopping malls & parking lots, Brantford's once-powerful core dwindled into a ghost town. It even doubled as a haunted town for the film Silent Hill! But things have evolved, and today, if you visit Downtown Brantford you'll see new life intermingling with our historic yesterdays! We are smack dab in the middle of an emerging renaissance! Every day there is more to see, do and experience in the downtown, and we invite you to be a part of the endless possibilities for what will happen here tomorrow.
