The neighbourhood centres on the intersection of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue. This intersection has been important to Toronto for over a hundred years. Early in the 19th century, this area was one of the largest cattle grazing regions in Upper Canada.
Eventually, the region became part of the old Town of North Toronto, which was incorporated in 1890. At that time, much of the area remained farmland, with public access to Toronto’s downtown by the Yonge Street streetcar line replacing the radial rail service to the neighbourhood. The City of Toronto annexed the locale in 1912.
The area emerged as a streetcar suburb, with more families settling into the neighbourhood and the breadwinners taking the streetcar to the city for work. By the early 1940s, the area was completely developed. Come 1954, the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) extended the Yonge line to Eglinton Avenue. A trolleybus provided access farther north, but the subway extension replaced it in 1973.
