The Township of Thorold, which included the hamlets of Allanburg, Beaverdams, Port Robinson, St. John's and Thorold South, was incorporated in 1798, while the Town of Thorold was incorporated as a village in 1850 and then as a Town in 1875. In 1970, the new Town of Thorold was created by combining the former Township of Thorold and the former Town of Thorold. On the first day of July 1975, the new Town of Thorold became the Corporation of the City of Thorold.

Thorold's appreciation for its heritage is reflected in the many homes, churches and buildings of its ancestors that been designated historical sites.
