WATCHDOG: Todmoren Mills celebrates community’s early historical heritage and current arts

East York Mirror

While the weather is still cool at times, you can tell by little signs of change that summer is coming.

The days are beginning to be hotter, though it is certainly cooler in the evenings and in the morning.

Soon it will be time to think about new schedules and projects.

One of the main characteristics of the East York and Leaside community has been the way in which people get involved in volunteer actives, or being a member of a hobby or sports group.

This year if you are looking for something different to do, why not consider belonging to one of our groups who specializes in local history and heritage.

There is no better way to develop a real sense of roots in one’s community than through developing a good knowledge of its past.

East York has a history dating back into the 1700s for European settlement and the area around Toronto has been the home of many First Nations people for thousands of years.

Leaside, while relatively new, has had an extremely important history based on industry, aviation (it had an airport at one time), and automobile manufacturing.

One good starting point in becoming involved in promoting local history and heritage would be Todmorden Mills.

Located on Pottery Rd. in the Don Valley, the site dates back to 1796.

At that time, governor John Graves Simcoe gave one pair of mill stones to Isaiah and Aaron Skinner to that they could construct the first grist mill on the Don River.

The area quickly developed into a major industrial complex.

In 1821 the first brewery in the watershed was built in 1821.

Later in 1827 a paper mill was built on the site out of the old mill building.

The site today has many buildings that are used to document and interpret the industrial history of the Don Valley.

A number of groups also share the site, such as the East Side Players Theater.

If you have not had an opportunity to visit the Todmorden Mills site you are certainly missing some great opportunities.

From June 20 to Sept. 13 there will be the Eco-Art-Fest, which will feature art activities, art tours and musical performances in a licenced outdoor space.

There are also the regular site tours that take place Wednesday through Sunday starting at noon for which a nominal fee is charged.

There are other events taking place that can be seen at and doing a search on Todmorden Mills.

If you would like more information on becoming involved in the Todmorden Mills site, or being a member, call them at 416-396-2819.
