Welcome to Buttonville in Markham Ontario
Buttonville is a historic community in Markham that is bordered by Hwy 404 to the west, 16th Avenue to north, Rodick Rd. to the east and Hwy 407 to the south. The area was named after John Button (b. 1772) who bought property here back in 1808 and whose descendants owned land in what is today Buttonville. By 1878 the village of Buttonville had a post office, a grist mill, a wagon maker, a school, a Lutheran church and a Methodist church.
Buttonville's growth was accelerated when Highway 404 opened several interchanges in the 1970s. Today, there are lots of businesses, hotels, restaurants located throughout the central and southern parts of Buttonville. The northeast quadrant is primarily residential. One of the best known places here is the Toronto Buttonville Municipal Airport, a sophisticated general aviation facility which offers group tours, flight training, sightseeing flights around Toronto, and commercial flights for the surrounding business community.
