McMichael Canadian Art CollectionKleinburg is an unincorporated village located in the city of Vaughan, Ontario, Canada. It is home to the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, a major art gallery, and the Kortright Centre for Conservation. In 2001, the village and its surrounding communities had a population of 4,595; the village itself has 282 dwellings, with a population of 952. Kleinburg comprises a narrow section of hilly landscape situated between two branches of the Humber river. The historic village is bounded by Highway 27 on the west and Stegman’s Mill Road to the east.

 

Kleinburg History

Kleinburg was founded by John Kline, a German-Canadian settler. A direct German translation of Kleinburg is "small town". Residents argue that the Town of Kleinburg could be named after its founder or after its landscape (though the latter would necessitate the spelling "Kleinberg", "Small Mountain" in English). In its early days, Kleinburg was dependent on its many flour and wheat mills, located off the Humber River. The large housing developments began in the 1950s in the west and continued in the 1970s southeast of Kleinburg, in 1993 in the south, 1998 sporadically in the northeast, 1990s south of Kleinburg and the 2000s to the north.

Kleinburg has historically been a small, quiet town, but now attracts many affluent visitors and residents. During its major expansion in the 1990s and early 2000s, many new large homes were built. The homes north and west of Nashville Road typically cost more than one million dollars. Older, larger and more established properties are valued more than this, while homes built near conservation areas and the Humber River are by far the most expensive.

 

Kleinburg Main Street

Humber River KleinburgKleinburg has a historic commercial district containing many heritage buildings and new developments with mixed residential and commercial uses. Main street has local shops and restaurants as well as national chains such as Starbucks and Royal Bank.

Local attractions include McMichael Art Gallery, Kortright Centre, Humber River Trails & Bindertwine Park, Copper Creek Golf Course, and The Doctor's House. The Pierre Berton Discovery Centre is in the final stage of planning and is expected to open in 2014.

 

Kleinburg Education

Most non-Catholic students were once bused to nearby King City Secondary School in King City. But since the opening of Emily Carr Secondary School, busing was eliminated, forcing students to walk far to get to the school as not even public busing services the area. There are not enough students for Kleinburg's own secondary school. However, there is a private school in the area, known as The Hill Academy (K-12). In 2008, the oldest and most historical school, Kleinburg Public Elementary school, was demolished and a new public elementary school by the same name was built and opened in September 2009. There are 5 schools in Kleinburg:

  • Kleinburg Christian Academy (Private Elementary)
  • Kleinburg Public Elementary School (Public Elementary)
  • Ecole La Fontaine (French Public Elementary School)
  • Montessori School of Kleinburg (Private School)
  • The Hill Academy (Private Secondary for student-athletes)

 

Kleinburg Culture

Binder Twine is an annual fall festival with roots in Kleinburg's agricultural history. The festival draws 25,000 people each year. It also conducts a Canada Day celebration and Christmas in the Village

Kleinburg is also home to the Toronto International Film Studios, a centre for television and motion picture production. Several famous movie stars are often spotted around Kleinburg, making it a popular tourist/gawker attraction. The TV show The Forest Rangers was filmed here from 1963-1965. In 2006, the movie The Sentinel was filmed at the McMichael Art Gallery. In the movie, all of the scenes at Camp David, both indoor and outdoor, we're filmed on the grounds of the McMichael Art Gallery, most notably the scene on the "Wedding Hill" where they filmed the president's helicopter taking off and being shot down by a missile (the explosion was added in after using special effects). Kleinburg was home to Canadian author Pierre Berton for nearly 50 years until his death in 2004. Kleinburg was also the home of former prime minister Lester B. Pearson.
