Markham is known for it commitment to preserving it’s heritage homes. This dedication is exemplified in the Markham Village Estates subdivision located at Sixteenth Avenue and Highway 48. This unique subdivision is home to more than 20 century homes that were saved from the onset of urban sprawl and relocated to this site. These historical homes have been lovingly restored by their owners who purchase their lots from the City of Markham and  had to adhere to strict restoration guidelines set down by the Markham heritage planning department.

Markham is also proud of its three landmark heritage conservation districts. They are: Markham Village located north of Highway 7 at Markham Road, Unionville Village at Highway 7 and Kennedy Road, and Thornhill Village at Yonge and John Streets.
