Originally a Seneca Village, it was settled by a prominent Quebec fur trader named James Baby (pronounced "Babby") in 1816 after he discovered the abandoned village that was covered with lush apple orchards and the Humber River was full of salmon. (*today salmon fishing is still popular in the river) The Government later acquired this land and resold it to a local developer named Home Smith, who began developing this subdivision in 1912 and later gained notorierty by developing what is now known as "The Kingsway" across the river, along with the Old Mill Inn.

Historic stone gates at Jane Street showcase the entrance to Baby Point, leading to a wide leafy enclave that exuded exclusivity with its stately properties. Grand georgians and detached tudors with large lots are found as you enter this treed and landscaped neighbourhood. Some of the most incredible properties are found in this area and are compared with being similar to smaller scaled Rosedale properties, but with larger lots. Most of these homes were built in the 1920's - 1930's and boast period quality details blending with modern restorations and renovations. The smaller and more modest properties are found on the side streets south of this area. These streets are also currently being redeveloped, with many of the smaller houses becoming new construction properties.

The Baby Point residents are also able to join and participate in the private Baby Point Club, with its log clubhouse, 2 tennis courts, lawn bowling and social activities.
