Hogg's Hollow is named after James Hogg, an eccentric
man who wore many hats. James was a successful mill operator, tavern
owner and an ambitious entrepreneur. In the mid 1800's he bought
up all the land at Yonge and York Mills, the area where he had been
working and living for several years. Being such a prominent figure
with a sincere love of the area, his name became synonymous with
the terrain at Yonge and York Mills. In 1853 he built the James
Hogg Tavern, a structure which still stands today. Formerly known
as the Jolly Miller, it has a colourful past, including being a
popular speak-easy during the prohibition era. Only a few of Hogg's
Hollow's original log cabin style homes have been preserved. Two
of which are incorporated into the renowned Auberge du Pommier restaurant,
just two minutes from Hogg's Hollow.
Hogg's Hollow is an enchanted place set amongst
the rustic beauty of the Don River Valley. Winding crescents and
private cul de sacs are adorned by majestic trees with the Don River
gently meandering through.
First class amenities are at its doorstep including grocery stores,
clothing stores, professional and medical offices, along with excellent
dining. Golf enthusiasts can walk to the scenic Don Valley Golf
Hogg's Hollow hosts its own "Community Fair" once a year.
Residents enjoy walking paths by the river, tennis courts and an
outdoor skating rink in the wintertime.
With only about 300 homes, Hogg's Hollow is one
of Toronto's most expensive neighbourhoods. The homes were built
between the 1920's and the 1960's along with some recent redevelopment.
They enjoy a variety of architectural styles including English Cottage,
Colonial, Georgian, Tudor and Modern. Most are on expansive lots
set amongst a lush landscape left in its original state and without
the intrusion of sidewalks.
