Fruitbelt Area (Formerly Fruitbelt District) takes in most of the territory between St. Catharines in the east and Hamilton in the west. Fruitbelt goes as far south as Smithville and Caistor Centre and is bounded on the north by Lake Ontario. Fruitbelt includes part of Greater Hamilton such as Winona and Fruitland.
Fruitbelt earned its name from the lush fruit trees and graperies that covered much of the area during much of the 20th century. Unfortunately, much of the orchards and vineyards have given way to urban sprawl.
Fruitbelt Area is part of Battlefields Region, so named for the many battle fields (from the War of 1812 - 1814) located in the region.
