Fremlin & Laing

Cabbagetown's name derives from the Irish immigrants who moved to the neighbourhood beginning in the late 1840s, said to have been so poor that they grew cabbage in their front yards. Cabbagetown is located on the east side of downtown and is bounded by Parliament, Wellesley and Dundas Streets and the Don Valley. Today's Cabbagetown is a thriving community for professional couples, families and singles.

The Cabbagetown neighbourhood was once described by the New York Times as "containing the largest collection of Victorian homes in North America". Cabbagetown's houses were built between 1860 and 1895 and most of these houses have been restored in a way that keeps with this historical neighbourhood.
