Inns were at the very centre of their respective communities, providing conviviality and shelter, food and drink, and a safe place to share stories and ideas. Come walk with us where you will meet some of the people who traversed the grounds of Montgomery’s Inn and neighbouring Thomas Riley Park. From first peoples to settlers, and Chinese market gardeners like Willie Chung who was born at the Inn in 1937. Or farm hands like Joshua Glover whose flight to freedom along the underground railway would galvanize the abolitionist movement in the United States and inspire the formation of the Republican Party.
Walk features an exploration of nearby Mimico creek and includes a gentle paved slope and a short walk up a grassy hill.
