Markham was founded in the late 1700s by William Moll Berczy. Markham was named after John Graves Simcoe’s friend William Markham, the Archbishop of York at the time. Markham Main Street still houses many of the same buildings that were built in the late 1800’s. In fact, The Benczik Team Realty Office at 120 Main Street North was once a well known butcher shop. The Leadbetter’s Meat Market opened its doors in the early 20th century and was a popular family run business. Our current boardroom was originally used as a meat locker. During and after the war it was used as a frozen food ‘locker’ where people could rent space to keep their food frozen, before refrigeration was common in the average home. We welcome you to come explore historic Main Street and all the beautiful surroundings. Feel free to stop by our office at 120 Main Street North as we prepare a nice cup of coffee for you.
