Fun Fact: The Iroquois used the floodplains, located on the Humber River in Vaughan, to plant corn, beans and squash, known as the three sisters. In the 1950s, University of Toronto excavated artifacts from the Seed-Baker site. Since 1975, more that a million artifacts were discovered and nineteen longhouses were excavated revealing that the village was occupied by the Iroquois from c. 1500 - 1550 AD.
