Free ROMWalk: Willowdale and York Cemetery, Farm to City Centre - Sept 11.22

York Cemetery Memorial to 99 Canadian VCS

Discover the transformation of the early farms of the 18th and 19th century into the centre of the city of North York prior to the amalgamation of Toronto. We will also explore the tranquility, history and residents of York Cemetery just steps away from the busy traffic and towering building of Yonge Street in the former North York.

This walk is free and registration is not required – just show up.

The walk takes place rain or shine and is approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours long.

ROMWalks is organized by ROM's Department of Museum Volunteers to provide support for the Museum. ROM is an agency of the Government of Ontario.
