Kitchener Real Estate & Homes For Sale


Kitchener is located in Southwestern Ontario, in the Saint Lawrence Lowlands. This geological and climatic region has wet-climate soils and deciduous forests. Situated in the Grand River Valley, the elevation is generally above 300 m (1,000 ft). It is one of three cities that make up the Regional Municipality of Waterloo and is the regional seat. The city covered an area of 136.86 km2 and had a population of 233,222 at the 2016 census. It is situated in the Grand River valley, 60 miles (95 km) west-southwest of Toronto and was also known as Berlin until a 1916 referendum changed its name. Kitchener (formerly Berlin), a city in Waterloo county, Ontario, is on the Canadian National Railway, 60 miles west of Toronto, and has an electric railway connection with Waterloo, Hespeler, and Preston.

Settlers are said to have arrived at its site in 1799, but the first recorded settler was Joseph Schneider, from Pennsylvania, who reached the place where Kitchener now stands in either 1806 or 1807. The settlement was first known as Sand Hills and later as Mount Pleasant. Many settlers came directly from Germany in 1830, and the name was changed to Berlin. Berlin was incorporated as a village in 1854, as a town in 1871, and as a city in 1912. The name was changed (1916) to Kitchener during World War, after Field-Marshal Lord Kitchener drowned at sea on June 5, 1916. In recent years city made rapid growth, mainly due to the diversified manufacturing industries located in it and some of them the largest of their kind in Canada. It has also developed into a distributing centre for a large area and has over 40 wholesale or distributing houses. In addition, it has two high schools, a Roman Catholic college, a public library, and a daily evening newspaper.
