Leslieville Toronto Real Estate

Leslieville began as a small village back in the 1850's. The village grew up around the Toronto Nurseries owned by George Leslie and sons, after whom this neighbourhood is named. Today it is quickly emerging as one of the city's hippest new neighbourhoods and is the headquarters of Toronto's film industry.

Leslieville's first public school principal was Alexander Muir, who composed "The Maple Leaf Forever". Muir's poetic verse was inspired when a brilliant autumn maple leaf fell from a Leslieville tree onto his jacket. That maple tree is still standing today and has become Leslieville's most famous landmark, designated by an historic plaque at the intersection of Laing Street and Memory Lane. Residents have a sense of pride in their quiet east end neighbourhood, evidenced by the historic street signs and family run businesses.
