Elmira and Area holds the major concentration of Mennonites who give the area its special flavour as well as being a special tourist attraction. Communities found here include Heidelburg, St Clements, St Jacobs, Crosshill, Linwood, Hawkesville, Conestogo, Winterbourne, Bloomingdale and Breslau. The Town of Elmira is the largest settlement and home to much of the industrial base. In most cases children are bused to schools. There is an excellent network of Regional Roads providing easy access to Kitchener-Waterloo and beyond. There are several new or newer subdivisions in a number of the communities as well as country properties up to 25 acres and of course many farms. I would suggest a wide search if you are looking for a home in this area. Once you have found some possibilities you can begin to narrow down the location.
