Fort York National Historic Site

Old Fort York is where Toronto began in 1793.  Before the town was incorporated the Fort York garrison was set up at the mouth of Garrison Creek to protect the settlement from invasion by American troops.  Today Fort York forms the historic hub of the rapidly developing residential neighbourhood from the Lakeshore up to King Street and from Strachan Ave to Spadina Ave.
