Mississauga's Great Heritage
Mississauga has great preservation of its heritage villages that were once unique to themselves. These heritage villages such as Erindale, Meadowvale, Clarkson, Malton, Port Credit and many more have their structures re-purposed to give both a modern and historic value to Mississauga residents. But, early settlers are not the only heritage value that we see in Mississauga today! We see new and old residents of every cultural background moving into Mississauga to leave their own little heritage piece on the city. I noticed this when attending the culinary walk on Dundas and Hurontario on this years (2017) doors open, led by a very knowledgeable and smart museum staff. It was great seeing all the family businesses and listening to their stories. Culture festival, bakeries, restaurants, associations, and other business are going to be leaving their mark so more generations can enjoy.
I came to Mississauga in 1993 from Poland for a better life and my family settled in the Applewood area. It was a culture shock for us but with Mississauga being welcoming we were able to adapt and learn the new language fairly quickly. My most treasured memory is going with my family to Erindale Park for picnics and to play baseball.
