Welcome to Ontario's "Feel Good Town"!

Victoria Hall, Cobourg's Town Hall, Concert Hall, Bailey Court Room, Northumberland Art GalleryIn the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Cobourg was the favoured summer destination of many wealthy American industrialists. The air was said to contain an "abnormal amount of ozone in the air second only to the Alps in Switzerland" which was believed to be highly beneficial.

Grand summer homes were built in Cobourg by our friends to the south and many survive to this day. As a result, Cobourg has become well-known for its fine examples of Victorian and Georgian architecture.

Today, Cobourg is the seat of government for Northumberland County. Strategically situated on Highway 401 and the Windsor-Montreal rail corridor, Cobourg is the home to many national and multi-national companies.

With a growing of population of 18,500 citizens, Cobourg is a thriving and dynamic place to visit, live, work and raise a family.
