Event description
Re-enact the first day of Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe's walk north on the Toronto Carrying Place in 1793

About this Event

In September 1793, Lieutenant Governor John Graves Simcoe left Lake Ontario exploring possible transportation routes northward, starting with the “Carrying Place” along the Humber River. In this annual event, the Swansea Historical Society re-traces the first day of Simcoe’s journey. Participants are welcome to just experience the morning walk as far as Bloor Street, the afternoon walk north toward Eglinton Flats, or the entire day (bring a lunch or try a restaurant in Bloor West Village during the break).

Note that registration is NOT required, but helps us anticipate the number of people participating.
