It has 26,478 residents in 8,721 households.Bolton is a subdued town, that has many defining features, such as its small-town charm, or the flowing Humber River that flows through the downtown. The downtown of Bolton has been revived since the late 1990s, and has become a bustling part of the community.
The town, formally known as Bolton's Mill, was founded in 1794 when James Bolton helped build a flour mill for his relative George Bolton.
The suburban housing developments began in the southern area, near King Street, up to 15th Sideroad of Albion (now known as Bolton Heights Road). The urban area did not expand until the late 1970s and early 1980s, which also led to development of an industrial area in the southwest. The urban area up to Columbia Way - the northern boundary - began booming in the late 1980s. Housing developments continued towards the southern and the western parts of the town about 1 km northwest of the heart of town in the 1990s and the 15th Sideroad in about 1995, especially to the north. The industrial area even began adding buildings to the southwest up to Simpson Road. The urban areas merged with the southern part in 2000 and the northwest.
