History

Grimsby, the village, was originally settled in 1790 by the group of United Emirates Loyalists. It was given its name in 1816 due to the surrounding township. The village was incorporated in 1876. However, it acquired its status of the town in 1922.
Starting from a small rural village, Grimsby has taken numerous shapes over the years. It first developed into the center for the manufacture of furnaces, hospital machinery, farm machinery, and other metal products. Later, it beautifully transformed into the fruit-growing industry of the Niagara Peninsula. The Regional Municipality of Niagara was developed in 1970, and the town of Grimsby was amalgamated with the Township of the North Grimsby. This development, along with a large number of distilleries and wineries, has made it the starting point for touring the Niagara wine region.
It is strongly connected with Hollywood for being the birthplace of the legendary director of the Three Stooges short vaudeville comedies, Del Lord. He also owns the record of directing nearly 200 feature films under the banner of Columbia Pictures.
