History of Kleinburg
Kleinburg was founded by John Kline, a German/Canadian settler. A direct German translation of Kleinburg is "Small Town." Residents argue that the Town of Kleinburg could be named after its founder or after its landscape (though the latter would necessitate the spelling "Kleinberg" ("Small Mountain" in English).
In its early days, Kleinburg was dependent on its many flour and wheat mills, located off the Humber River.
The large housing developments began in the 1950s in the west and continued in the 1970s southeast of Kleinburg, in 1993 in the south, 1998 sporadically in the northeast, 1990s south of Kleinburg and the 2000s to the north.
Kleinburg has always been a small, quiet town, attracting many affluent visitors and residents. During its major expansion in the 1990s and early 2000s, many new large homes have been built. The homes north and west of Nashville Road typically cost more than one million dollars. Older, larger and more established properties are valued more than this, while homes built near conservation areas and the Humber River are by far the most expensive.

Most of these (86 per cent) settled in Kleinburg before 1971.
