Most of the early settlers in Jordan Village were German in origin, and were devout practicing Mennonites. They walked north from the United States in 1799, and founded the villages of Jordan and Vineland. An Ontario Historical Plaque was erected at the Jordan Museum by the province to commemorate the first Mennonite Settlement's role in Ontario's heritage. The First Mennonite Church in Vineland was organized in 1801 and is the oldest Mennonite congregation in Canada.
With a large natural harbour at the mouth of Twenty Creek, Jordan became a busy shipping centre for the export of logs for boat masts, tan bark, hides, ashes used in industrial centres for the manufacture of soap, as well as grain, flour, fruit and fruit products.
Nowadays? Jordan is not only home to The Kingsway at Jordan Village - our premier community of townhomes and walk-ups that is located right in the heart of Jordan Village, but it also boasts many wineries due to its climatically advantageous grape-growing conditions in the Niagara Region and is one of the premier icewine-producing destinations in Canada.
