About Wellesley

Wellesley Village is located in the northwest corner of the Region of Waterloo
nestled amongst the rolling hillsides, farms and settlements. The village was
first known as Smithville, named for John Smith who developed a dam site
creating the picturesque Wellesley Pond in the Albert Erb Conservation Area.
The village boundaries were surveyed in 1855 and eventually renamed Wellesley for the eldest brother of the Duke of Wellington, Richard Wellesley.








The village is home to over 1000 residents and boasts a list of numerous
community events throughout the year, of which Art Round the Pond is only one!
