Cabbagetown Real Estate
Cabbagetown is one of the most famous neighbourhoods in Old Toronto. For many years, this area was the home of early Irish settlers who had come to the city in the 1840s. At that time, this part of the city was very poor and the residents struggled to get enough food. The neighbourhood earned its name because of the fact that the Irish residents could only afford to eat the cabbages they grew in their yards. Since those early days, Cabbagetown has evolved into one of the most desirable residential neighbourhoods in the city. Today, Cabbagetown real estate is highly valued.
