Montgomery’s Inn is a place with rich history. Back in the 1840s, locals gathered in the tavern and ballroom to exchange news, and travellers enjoyed a warm meal and a shelter for the night. The restored inn reflects this life through the displays, historical photographs and artefacts in room settings. Today, thanks to the local citizens and government support, the Montgomery’s Inn remains a significant Etobicoke heritage resource for visitors from near and far.
