Montgomery's Inn

The main section of this building, one of the province's finest remaining examples of Loyalist Georgian architecture, was erected about 1832. Its original owner, the innkeeper, Thomas Montgomery (1790-1877), was a native of Ireland and a Captain in the York Militia. Situated on Dundas Street, one of Upper Canada's principal highways, the inn was a favourite stopping place for travellers and its large rooms provided space for public meetings. The Home District Council designated Montgomery's Inn as the site of Etobicoke's annual Township Meetings of 1847 and 1849. Surrounded today by a rapidly expanding metropolis, it provides visual evidence of early nineteenth century life in this region.
