Village of Freelton

The community is named after its founder, Patrick Freel, who in 1840 built a hotel on the site. Before regional government changed boundaries, Freelton was at the junction of the townships of East Flamborough, West Flamborough, and Beverly. Freel's brother-in-law, Thomas Campbell, also built a hotel in Freelton. He named it Central Hotel because it was equidistant from Galt, Guelph, and Hamilton.
