New To Pelham?
The Town of Pelham is located just 30 minutes west of Niagara Falls quietly nestled into a hillside known as the Fonthill Kame. Created by the retreating glaciers of the last ice age this distinctive geological feature rises some 75 m (246 ft) above the surrounding land and boasts the highest elevation in the Niagara Region. On a clear day, the tall buildings of Niagara Falls and Toronto are clearly visible.
Pelham is abundant with babbling brooks, scenic country roads, outstanding cycling routes, unique farm experiences, specialty shopping boutiques and culinary destinations. Natural beauty abounds all year around, with spectacular displays of spring blossoms and autumn colouring.
In 1970, the Town of Pelham was created to unify five historical communities: Fonthill, Ridgeville, Effingham, North Pelham and Fenwick into a single blossoming town covering 126.42 square kilometres.
Pelham is fast becoming an active lifestyle leader in Niagara.
Improving the opportunity to walk or cycle to our popular weekly Farmers’ market, Supper Market, the Fonthill Bandshell Summer concert series, our boutique shops and restaurants has been a fundamental focus of our Downtown Fonthill revitalization project.
Pelham has a vibrant cultural heritage that includes the Pelham Art Festival held annually for over 25 years, our cutting-edge community library, a wide variety of local arts/artisan studios and incredible local musical talent.
