The Museum – an 1840s inn
Take a tour of Montgomery’s Inn and step back in time.
Step into an earlier age, when locals gathered in the tavern and ballroom to exchange news and views, and travellers enjoyed a good meal and a bed for the night.
Built in 1830 by Ulster immigrants Thomas and Margaret Montgomery, the Inn was also a home to their family and to various lodgers and servants.
The restored inn reflects life in 1847, a heyday for the innkeepers, but a trying time for Irish famine refugees flooding into Toronto in search of a better life.
Then as now, the handsome building, comfortable rooms, and well-used tavern were a welcome sight for visitors from far and wide.
