With stops in the neighbourhood around Spadina Museum, this walking
tour explores patterns of how people have lived on the lands above
and below the Davenport escarpment and how that geography affected
what we see today.
From Indigenous peoples, to the land grants made to well-connected
people, to the Austin family and Henry Pellatt, those who have
occupied this area have left their mark on the land. The tour
includes descending the Baldwin Steps and climbing the slope of
Walmer Road and Austin Terrace.
