Location # 2364

The village of Brougham, that was once described as Pickering township's "Municipal Metropolis" has been unfortunate enough to find itself at the crossroads of the 407 and the Pickering Airport project. Once a thriving community and business centre, Brougham is becoming a virtual ghost town. The majority of its houses are boarded up, and businesses have either folded or moved elsewhere.

  • Just to the east of here lies the ghost town of Howell's Hollow. This was the location of the first post office in the area also with the name "Brougham". The date being 1836. For more info read about the ghost town on the other write-up under "Ajax/Pickering".

clay70 Whats even crazier is the scope of the area the feds are watching (and boarding up old homes). Imagine an airport that would stretch from Altona to Brougham. Wouldn't that be the largest airport on earth? The area is monstrous. Why do feds care about 407? aren't freeways the province's domain?
