Caledonia, Ontario is a small community of under 10,000 residents in Haldimand County. The name Caledonia comes from the name that the Romans used to refer to the area north of Hadrian’s Wall - roughly modern day Scotland. The historic town has more connections to Scotland than just its name, many old sites and landmarks have names in common like Edinburgh Square and Glasgow Hall. In recent years, Caledonia’s close proximity to the bigger cities of Hamilton, Brantford, and Burlington is attracting the attention of new residents that are looking for a more relaxed pace.
