Historical Homes of Old Richmond Hill
In contrast to the traffic and commerce of Yonge Street, Richmond Hill’s side streets have historically been a quiet refuge. It was on these village backstreets that the ordinary citizens of the Victorian and Edwardian community lived in their comfortable but unpretentious houses. Today, Richmond Hill’s village backstreets remain a desirable place to live, with large shade trees lining the streets, picket fences, front yard gardens and many fine old buildings.
This walk starts from the Heritage Services Booth at the Richmond Hill Farmers Market (Elgin Barrow Arena Parking Lot) 43 Church Street South.
There is no charge to attend.
