DID YOU KNOW? The Leslieville Edition

Leslieville started as an independent village during the 1850s.  The community was oriented around the Toronto nurseries, an important gardening business owned by George Leslie (1804–1893), with many of the area’s residents employed as gardeners or working at the nearby brick factory.  Leslie’s home at Queen and Leslie no longer exists but the general store remains on Queen east of Jones Avenue.
