Walking Tour

On this HistoricTO tour at Todmorden Mills, guests will delve into the unwritten history of the Don Valley, from its origins as a fruitful land used by Indigenous Peoples to hunt, fish and camp, to the struggles of the labourers harnessing the massive power of the Don River to build the young city of York (Toronto) and feed its settlers. As the city grew, the Don Valley came to be seen as a rift dividing Toronto - obstacle to city development, a place only good for rough industry and inhabited by marginalized people with no place else to go. At Todmorden Mills guests can see the effects of industry on the environment and discover more recent attempts to undo some of the damage caused.
