Toronto's Top 10 : Neighborhoods - Cabbagetown Settled in the 1840s by hardscrabble Irish immigrants who grew cabbages in their front gardens to help make ends meet, this area east of Sherbourne St between Wellesley St E and Gerrard St E is today almost completely gentrified.
One of the oldest homes in Caggagetown a gothic farmhouse mansion on Winchester. I love this home (don't like the front walkway though) This house is located at 156 Winchester Street, and called the Daniel Lamb House. Its facade is restored by the current owner to its original 1877 appearance. Daniel Lamb was a city alderman who is credited for the creation of Toronto's first zoo in 1890
