Residents and invited guests of Delmanor Northtown took an afternoon to explore estate houses and famous streets in the Toronto area.
Many of us have heard that Yonge Street is the longest street in the world, but we pass by countless streets and historic houses in our neighborhood every day without having heard their own unique stories.
Some of the history of our street names date back to families and events in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s. Looking at North York and Toronto today, the original families would be shocked and surprised to see their how their farmland has been transformed into the area where our present day buildings stand.
Richard Fiennes-Clinton, with Muddy York Walking Tours took residents on a “talking tour” sharing with them the history of events & curious facts as they relate to these significant houses and streets.
Luckily some of these original houses have been relocated and are still open to visitors that would like to take a glimpse into the past. A very interesting afternoon was had by all!
