Hi, Barton Villagers!
With so much cool stuff happening on our little stretch of Barton these days, we thought it was about time we start a Barton Village blog: a place to stay connected, to find out about events happening in the area, to learn more about all the great businesses and service providers Barton Village has to offer, and to explore the history of the neighbourhood, which, with its proximity to industry, was once the bustling centre of Hamilton's economy. Our great city has changed dramatically over time, and Barton Village is no exception. Although the loss of industry ushered in a difficult era for Barton Village, this neighourhood has never lost its strong sense of community or its Hamiltonian pride. Here at the Barton Village BIA, our mission is to support local businesses and communities, to bring people together through community events and initiatives, and to bolster community pride through beautification efforts -- and we couldn't do it without YOU!
Stay tuned to this space for updates, and drop us a line if there's a business, event, community member, or initiative you'd like to see featured here.
I'm Avril, and I'm the Social Media and Marketing Coordinator for the Barton Village BIA. On the Barton Villager blog, you'll find news and updates on Barton Village events, businesses, history, and community initiatives.
