Seaton Village  JANE’S WALK 2014

SUNDAY MAY 4TH,  AT 1:00PM

MEET US IN FRONT OF 700 MARKHAM STREET  – SECOND BLOCK NORTH OF BLOOR AND ONE WEST OF BATHURST ST. (FORMERLY ST. PETER’S SCHOOL)

 

Seaton Village (Bloor to Dupont, Bathurst to Christie) is now part of ‘downtown’ Toronto, but 150 years ago it was out in the sticks.  Among its earliest settlers were escaped American slaves, traces of whose houses remain.  Palmerston Square, now full of houses, was intended as a ‘village green’ by an early developer.  Christie Pits, where Garrison Creek once flowed, was the source of sand and gravel to help build Toronto.

The Seaton Village Residents’ Association has been very active in a recent initiative to give all the lanes in the area historically significant names.  Some names are prosaic – St. Peter’s Lane, right behind the former St. Peter’s School – and others are more romantic.  Crestfallen Lane, Belmira Fumo Lane,  Vermouth Lane.

Walk with us to become acquainted with the history of a small village hidden in a big city.
