Foxley Grove grew from the former estate of Justice Samuel B. Harrison. This tour charts the development and growth of
the earliest subdivisions and takes into account changes up to the present day. It was a bold mix of housing for
its day: the developer deliberately offered various levels of quality to prospective
buyers in one-and-a-half-storey mansards, two-storeys, and two-and-a-half storey mansards, all in handsome rows.
"Downtown" Foxley Grove would be the intimate corner of Argyle and Dovercourt,
anchored by a fine factory, church and commercial building. Join us for an
exploration of a changing neighbourhood. The tour will wander slightly to include what is perhaps the best realized Queen Anne house in Ontario.
Thank you for joining us after the tour, a rainy Sunday Oct 22nd, 2006, in the basement of the Great Hall (Gordon and Helliwell, 1890), 1087 Queen St. W. for the Toronto Architectural Conservancy’s
ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING. We appreciate your validation of our ongoing support for the Citizens for Riverdale Hospital OMB appeal, and we'll keep you posted on its progress.
