You can tell who is local to this town simply by how they pronounce it. But regardless of whether you say “aa-ron” or “ee-rin”, if you are familiar with the little town, consider yourself fortunate. What is now a tight-knit community of over 11,000 started off as a tiny hamlet known as Ballinafad. The area is actually an amalgamation of quite a few different micro-communities, making Erin a unique place to live. A hop-skip-and-a-jump over to the Northwest of Erin is the partner village of Hillsburgh, which began one year after the first settler landed in Erin. Together, these areas have grown into thriving centres of art, culture, music and recreation.
The town of Erin and its surrounding hamlets offer all of the historic charm of nearby towns, but have managed to keep the cost of living much lower than comparable communities in the province. The close proximity to the tri-city of Guelph, Kitchener and Waterloo make Erin an attractive place to live for those commuting to work, or to one of these cities’ prestigious Universities. Whether you’re new to this small-town life or you come from generations of Erinites, making your nest in these parts comes with many perks. Take your farmhouse from shabby to chic by updating your kitchen with a high-contrast, tile-grout combo. Or, put the focus on making the perfect place to hide away in the bathroom of your dreams. Do you have a family? Are you tired of having a disaster-zone laundry room that makes you a little uneasy every time you step into it? NAK Cabinetry can help you with all of these endeavours, offering modern solutions for classic home problems.
Erin definitely puts the focus on its rural roots. The Erin Agricultural Society is in charge of running many different events to strengthen this community. Like many of the surrounding areas, Erin has its very own Fall Fair each autumn. It also has a bustling “Centre 2000”, where many of the town’s main amenities meet under one roof. Here, you’ll find a movie theatre, an arena, healthcare practitioners, a library, and even a secondary school! Having all of these staples so close together ensures that locals stay close – literally.
The land that Erin sits on is also very beautiful. Many hills grace the area, making for scenic drives when the weather is right. There is also a pond on the edge of town that is a real favourite for local fishermen, although you may find a snapping turtle or two on the end of your line every now and then! Head downtown to get a healthy dosing of local shops, cute boutiques and amazing eateries. Nearby Hillsburgh, though quite small in size, boasts its own arena on the main street – perfect for all those who like to play puck.
From farming to fishing, any who have a love for the rural life will enjoy being within this community’s borders.
