Jane’s Walk: Settling in the City – Toronto’s Corktown Neighbourhood

Enoch Turner Schoolhouse

Sunday, May 6, 2018 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. – FREE

Hosted by the Ontario Heritage Trust and the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse Foundation

Corktown, one of Toronto’s oldest areas, retains a rich stock of domestic, industrial and institutional heritage buildings. Its name refers to the large number of Irish immigrants who lived in the area in the 1800s, many of whom embarked from Cork.

Traditionally a working class area, Corktown is undergoing substantial change as new residents and businesses move into the area. Join us as we explore the homes, factories, places of worship and businesses that made Corktown the centre of life for many 19th-century immigrants!

This walk will begin inside the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse.

Note: While Enoch Turner Schoolhouse is wheelchair accessible, there may be busy streets, curbs and steps throughout this walk.
