Limehouse is a small community located between Acton & Georgetown that is home to approximately 800 residents. It gained its name from its limestone hills that have been mined here from quarries for more than a century. When Limehouse was thriving with industry the road systems were not advanced so it was important to produce lime where it was discovered so they built kilns alongside the railway line to process and ship the material. Today you can hike through Limehouse Conservation Area and see the ruins of the kilns that were used.
Limehouse is a small place but it does offer some beautiful hiking trails, a nice park with baseball diamonds, its own Public School for grades 1-5 as well as the Conservation Area.
