When it comes to small, close knit communities in Toronto, Henry Farm is always at the top of the list.
With a community association, the people of this neighbourhood can be rest assured that they are in good hands at all time. This association is responsible for everything from Block Parent programs to safety to recreational activities.
Additionally, the area is well known for its newsletter, known as the “Henry Farmer.” This newsletter keeps local residents abreast as to what is going on in the community at any given time.
In 1806, Henry Mulholland originally founded the property that makes up Henry Farm. After changing hands, the same property was purchased by the great grandson of Mulholland, George S. Henry, in 1898.
In 1958, Henry decided to sell his property to the developers of the community that we see in today’s day and age. With a sale price of $2 million, Henry made out nicely in the deal.
Shortly after purchasing the property, the developers began to plan the community.
While home styles are mixed throughout Henry Farm, most are built in Tudor Revival and Georgian style. This includes everything from two story properties to split-levels and bungalows.
The majority of the homes in Henry Farm were constructed during the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Along with these properties, there are newer condo developments and apartment buildings located on the boundary of the community.
