Scarborough was incorporated as a township in 1850, became a borough in 1967, was incorporated as a city in 1983 and local government was amalgamated as part of the City of Toronto by provincial decree in 1997.
The community of Scarborough covers a huge geographical area. As a result, rather than having a single main street, Scarborough developed many crossroads communities within its borders with distinct names and personalities. Many of these community names have survived into the present. Scarborough was the site of several native settlements prior to the middle of the 15th century. An ossuary was discovered in 1956 at Bellamy Road and Lawrence Avenue East during the start of new house construction. An archaeological investigation conducted by the University of Toronto confirmed the findings. Native groups reconsecrated the ossuary and a plaque was erected to commemorate the importance of the site.
The city of Scarborough is part of the newly created Greater Toronto Area and borders along Toronto’s East Side. Scarborough covers a large area and is home to numerous apartment complexes and housing rentals. The average price of an apartment is generally lower then it would be in Toronto due to the simple fact that the city of Scarborough is located further away from Toronto’s downtown core.
The centre of Scarborough is located in the northern part of the city, right next to Highway 401. City Hall is located in a section of land that is home to many government buildings and the Y.M.C.A. Also located next to City Hall is Scarborough’s biggest mall, the Scarborough Town Centre. With access off of McCowen or Brimley Rd., the mall has recently been renovated with new stores and restaurants and has also added a series of gigantic movie theatres that are second to none.
