Danforth Village in Toronto, was named after Asa Danforth, an American contractor who built Kingston Road in 1799, but didn't build Danforth Avenue. Danforth Village is located North of Danforth Avenue and was originally held by The Church of England. The land South of Danforth Avenue was owned by Farming and Brick Building Families. The City of Toronto annexed Danforth Village in 1908 and that’s when it started to be sub-divided.
Two of the most impressive events during the growth of The Danforth Toronto Neighborhood was the completion of the Prince Edward Viaduct in 1918 This massive and impressive Bridge across the Don River Valley joins Bloor Street (next to Rosedale and Yorkville) and Danforth Avenue (including Playter Estates, Riverdale, Danfoth Village) together. The other was the Opening of the Bloor / Danforth Subway in 1966.
Danforth Village is South of Milverton Boulevard to Woodbine and then South of Danforth to Victoria Park Avenue. DANFORTH VILLAGE run West along the Train Tracks to Greenwood up o Milverton.
