Port Credit is found at the mouth of the Credit River on the north shore of Lake Ontario, within the south-central area of the City of Mississauga. Port Credit's former town boundaries are the Canadian National Railway tracks (where the Lakeshore West GO trains run) to the north, Seneca Avenue and the western edge of the Adamson Estate (Royal Conservatory School, Mississauga site) to the east and Godfrey's Lane and the town-home complex located on the west side of Shawnmarr Road to the west.
The name "Port Credit" came from its roots as a trading post where goods were traded or bought on credit. The earliest reference is on a map drawn in 1757 by La Broquerie at Fort Frontenac, a fort built by the French at the mouth of the Cataraqui River, the site of the city of Kingston. The heart of Port Credit is its harbour at the mouth of the Credit River. Once a working fishing port and a regional trading centre for grain and other agricultural products, the Port Credit Harbour has seen many roles in the community. The first permanent structure to be built in the village was the Government Inn (1798-1861), once located on the east bank of the River. Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe had ordered construction of the Inn to serve as a way station for travellers by land and lake, and it was leased to a succession of residents until its destruction by fire. The village plan was laid out in 1834 and for several years, Port Credit was a thriving harbour community. It acquired the status of "police village" in 1909, town status in 1961.
The port was supplanted as a trading centre for shipping by the coming of the railway, but it has always changed with the times. Later in the 19th century, it became known for its stonehooking trade. For years, a unique craft called a "stonehooker" plied the waters of Lake Ontario, near the shore, collecting stones for use in local building trades. Other industries such as the St. Lawrence Starch Works (1889-1989) and the Port Credit Brick Yard (1891-1927) provided employment for many local residents. In 1932 L.B.Lloyd built an oil refinery on the old brick yard site and operated by a succession of operators culminating in its' purchase by a division of Texaco who operated it until its closing in 1985.
