Heritage Toronto is hosting a walking tour of Corktown this Saturday, April 26 at 1:30 p.m. Here are the details:
Featuring some of Toronto’s oldest architecture, the Corktown neighbourhood was settled largely by working-class Irish immigrants in the 1800s, and became home to residents such as the Gooderham distillery magnates and Black community leaders Thornton and Lucie Blackburn. Explore Corktown and see how its buildings and streetscapes have adapted to new residents and uses while retaining their historical character.
