The town of Wellesley Ontario is a rural township of the Municipality of Waterloo. Though not officially incorporated until the 1850’s, the town was settled in the early 1800’s with a significantly Mennonite population. The community quickly grew after a little financial help from the government to build a grist mill and sawmill, and families began to populate the area. Now many residents commute into downtown Waterloo for employment with large businesses, but call Wellesley home thanks to its quieter lifestyle.
Given that Wellesley has a large commuter population, this smaller community has an endless supply of things to do. The Wellesley Apple Butter and Cheese Festival is the town’s most popular event, as local businesses and artisans host street markets, sports contests, tours of the city and a classic car show. Wellesley also has many large and small businesses, churches, and the benefits of a short commute to the major cities of Waterloo, Kitchener and Guelph.
