Soccer players in Maple The Indian portage route from Lake Ontario to Lake Huron via the Humber and the Holland Rivers became known as the Toronto Carrying-Place Trail. During the War on 1812 a Settlement Road was built to help with the defence of the Upper Great Lakes from American attack, and Richmond Hill grew as a stagecoach stop on Yonge Street between Toronto and Holland Landing. By the 1850s, the railways connected the area's farmers, resources and factories with markets in Toronto and beyond. In teh 1900s, the Automobile made the region a vacation destination for now-mobile Torontonians, and later made it a bedroom community for the ever expanding Toronto.
