Hogg's Hollow - Walking Tour

Explore the Hogg’s Hollow area during North York’s 100th anniversary. The neighbourhood’s idyllic charm hides harrowing stories of heroism and heartbreak, from its dramatic role in the 1837 Upper Canada Rebellion to the infamous location of the 1960 construction disaster resulting in the deaths of Italian immigrant workers.
