There’s truly so much to love about Collingwood – the recreational opportunities, the food, the scenery, the people and the history. Collingwood was incorporated as a town in 1858 and as time went on, it grew into an industrial place to live. The addition of the railway, the harbor and the Collingwood Shipyards cemented its status as a place to live and work. In 1983, government incentives brought manufacturing companies to the area and Collingwood became the largest industrial employer in the region.

Because Collingwood has been around for so long, there is an abundance of historic homes. There are many perks to living in a home that has been around for over 100 years, including it being filled with character. Here are some of the current historic homes for sale in the area.
