LESLIEVILLE! The new Trendy Place to Live in Toronto Ontario with quaint homes, houses and some Leslieville real estate properties are over 100 years old. This Tornto urban chic location is a hip and cool place to live with new families moving into the area.
It began as a small Village in the 1850's around the George Leslie & Sons Nurseries. This is how it got its name. One of the first buildings was the Leslieville Public School and its first Principal Alexander Muir composed "The Maple Leaf Forever". It was inspired by a Maple Leaf landing on his jacket. That Maple Tree still stands today at Laing Street and Memory Lane. It has become Leslieville's most charish and famous landmark and has been designated with its own Historical Plaque. The Wall above has been painted to commorate Mr. Muir and The Maple Leaf.
