Newmarket History: Joseph Hill, Newmarket's first settler, built a home, a store and a gristmill on the west side of the Holland River just south of today's Water Street. His mill, a small wooden building, produced its first bushel of flour just before Christmas in 1801.

In 1803, Hill sold his house, store and mill to Elisha Beman, but he kept a sawmill on the east side of the dam. He, then, built a tannery on a creek crossing today's Gorham Street. When Beman discovered that Hill didn't own the land, he bought it and evicted Hill.

At the time Hill had a partner in his sawmill, but was sued for his partner's debts acquired in the United States. His partner lost the lawsuit and a judgement was issued against the sawmill, thus leaving Hill in a precarious financial position. Eventually, the property was seized, and Peter Robinson, Elisha Beman's oldest stepson bought it at auction.

In 1812, Hill, Newmarket's first settler and Vermont native, moved to Pennsylvania with his family, upset at the judicial system and his experience in Newmarket.

Glenway Estates Real Estate: Although one of the smallest neighbourhoods in Newmarket, Glenway has always been one of the largest in terms of desirability by home buyers and sellers. Situated on the north side of McCaffrey Road between Bathurst Street to the west, Yonge Street to the east and Davis Drive to the north, this community is currently undergoing what may be a change in local ambiance.

Glenway Golf and Country Club, once one of the most well-known landmarks in Newmarket, is no more. What will become of the golf course lands is a contentious issue. Signs on lawns throughout Glenway insist the residents do not want new development to occur on the former golf course. Open space is much preferred here.
