Built in the 1830s to shelter travellers, Montgomery’s Inn brought people together from the surrounding area and beyond over food, drink, games, and more. More than 170 years later, it’s still doing just that. This lively museum gives visitors the opportunity to see how a 19th-century Canadian inn was run from ballroom to bedrooms, with a kitchen and bar still in full working order.
Go behind the scenes and hear the diverse stories of people who traversed the grounds from Chinese market gardeners to an employee who escaped his enslavement in the United States through the Underground Railroad.
Montgomery’s Inn gathered communities around food, drink, news and laughter. Keep that spirit alive today: there’s always something happening at the Inn.
Montgomery’s Inn Museum highlights the historical role played by the Inn as a tavern, farm, local gathering place, and community hub in the development and history of Etobicoke. The site is located in Thomas Riley Park which includes wildflower gardens, trails, a lawn bowling facility, tennis courts, playgrounds, and a community garden.
