Looking forward. Looking back.

Montgomery’s Inn Event Calendar 2017

Montgomery’s Inn is undergoing two revitalization projects due for completion in 2018. The first will create a more welcoming and captivating visitor entrance. The second, to preserve and refresh the historic building of the Inn and its presentation, has already started.

During construction, the museum will remain open, and visitors can access it easily through the original tavern entrance in the historic building. The nature of the construction work may mean that there will be the odd day when the Inn needs to close. Call 416-394-8113 to check that the Inn is open and hours of operation. The Inn’s weekly Wednesday’s farmers market will continue to run during these projects. It is now indoors for the winter season.
