Join us on Sunday, May 8th at 10AM for our Jane’s Walk Three Centuries of Corktown.
Corktown, one of Toronto’s oldest areas, retains a rich stock of heritage buildings including churches, schools, theatres, and the site of the first Parliament buildings.
The name Corktown refers to the Irish immigrants who lived here in the 1800s, many of whom embarked from Cork.
Corktown stretches from Berkeley St. to River St. and from the south side of Shuter St. to Lakeshore Blvd. Vestiges of 19th century workers’ housing and remnants commercial and industrial activity are still visible but Corktown has undergone substantial change as new residences and businesses and cultural venues transform the area.
