"I had only heard bad stories about Realtors and sadly, I needed to deal with one because I wanted my own place. The Realtor GTA set me up with was exceptional - knew exactly where I was coming from and, best of all, she knew just what I wanted. Now I have a great two bedroom home and a new friend."

Palgrave is a Compact Rural Community and unincorporated place in the Town of Caledon, Regional Municipality of Peel in the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario, Canada.
It is about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) north of Bolton and about 50 kilometres (31 mi) northwest of Toronto.
Palgrave is situated on the Oak Ridges Moraine, a 160-kilometre (99 mi) long ridge of hilly terrain created by retreating glaciers depositing large quantities of sand and gravel sediments.
The moraine is a primary source for many river systems in this part of southern Ontario.
The nearby Palgrave Moraine intersects the Oak Ridges Moraine, and ultimately merges with it to the east, at the western boundary of King Township.
The Humber River flows west of Palgrave. Several creeks and swampy ponds are found in the area and a former mill pond lies to the northwest.
Palgrave was originally called Buckstown after Brian Dolan, nicknamed Barney or Buck. He managed the Western Hotel after it was built in 1846.
In 1869, postal authorities renamed the community Palgrave.
Palgrave was bisected by a line of the Hamilton & North-Western Railway (mentioned above).
The line was abandoned by CN in 1986 and has since been rehabilitated and incorporated into a multi-use regional recreational trail which is part of the Caledon Trailway,
The Great Pine Ridge Trail and the Trans Canada Trail.
The Bruce Trail, one of Ontario's major recreational hiking trails, passes the town roughly 1.5 km to the west.
