Richard's Notes

I wager most people in Toronto have never heard of this little hidden gem of a village.   With different pockets for different flavours springing up everywhere in Toronto - there is even a book about it!, I think this is a rare opportunity to climb on board, the second floor, if you will, (of ten, figuratively speaking) before it takes off with the rest.  When there is easy accesses to the main arteries (5 minutes to HWY 401 and 10 minutes to QEW), the area taking off in no time is a no brainer. 

I encourage you to stroll off Church Street, into the residential enclave in the village.  Absolutely charming sprinkled with Century Homes - almost like a preserved museum for the Century past!



1The Founding of Weston   -  Settlers were attracted to this vicinity in the 1790s by the area's rich timber resources and the water-power potential of the Humber River here. By 1792 a sawmill was established on the west bank and within two decades a small hamlet, known as "The Humber", had developed. About 1815 James Farr, a prominent local mill-owner, named it Weston after his English ancestral home. The community subsequently expanded along both sides 0f the river until 1850 when a disastrous flood destroyed the west bank settlement. Improvements to the Weston Road and the arrival of the Grand Trunk Railway in 1856 stimulated substantial further growth on the east side. Incorporated as a Village in 1881, Weston became part of the Borough of York in 1967.
