Montgomery’s Inn Museum highlights the historical role played by the Inn as a tavern, farm, local gathering place, and community hub in the development and history of Etobicoke. The site is located in Thomas Riley Park which includes wildflower gardens, trails, a lawn bowling facility, tennis courts, playgrounds, and a community garden. The site includes a free-standing, brick wood-fired bake oven built in 2011.
Features of the building include the 1830s Inn which features twelve restored rooms, a tea room, a barroom, and a commercial kitchen as well as a modern addition that includes a 3,000 volume research library, a gallery space, archives, and a gift shop.
The museum continues to extend the tradition of hospitality started by the Montgomery family in the 1830s, and is available for special event, wedding, or meeting rentals. Visitors can explore the pivotal role of the tavern in colonial Canada through ongoing educational programs, tours, events, exhibits, and farmers’ markets.
