Historical

 

The earliest European settlers were ex- Butler's Rangers who had fought on the side of the Loyalists in the American Revolution. Most of these early settlers were German in origin, and were devout practicing Mennonites. These Mennonites (Pennsylvania Dutch) walked north from the United States in 1799, and founded the village of Jordan and Vineland. An Ontario Historical Plaque was erected at the Jordan Museum by the province to commemorate the first Mennonite Settlement's role in Ontario's heritage. The First Mennonite Church in Vineland, adjacent to the cemetery at the corner of Regional Road 81 (former highway 8) and Martin Road, organized in 1801, is the oldest Mennonite congregation in Canada.

With a large natural harbour at the mouth of Twenty Creek, Jordan became a busy shipping centre for the export of logs for boat masts, tan bark, hides, ashes used in industrial centres for the manufacture of soap, as well as grain, flour, fruit and fruit products. A small ship building industry existed for a time on the banks of the Twenty.

Jordan became part of The Town of Lincoln on January 1, 1970 as the result of a municipal corporation created by the Legislature of Ontario through the amalgamation of the Town of Beamsville, the Township of Clinton, and approximately half the Township of Louth.

 

 

 


ECOLOGICAL

 

Jordan's climate is humid continental and can be considered a unique micro-climate because of the moderating influence of Lake Ontario/Lake Erie and the sheltering effect of the NiagaraEscarpment. The area is known in Canada for its orchards, vineyards, wineries and restaurants that feature local produce and wines. Fruit crops grown in Jordan include cherries, peaches, apples and pears, and during the summer attract many tourists from all over Ontario, particularly Toronto.
