Cabbagetown Neighbourhood History

Thousands of Irish immigrated to Cabbagetown in the 1840’s after the potato famins back home in Ireland. Many of the residents would grow cabbage in their front gardens which is how Cabbagetown got it’s name. Cabbagetown was hit hard by the Depression in the 1930’s but was later revitalized when new owners bought many of the historical Victorian homes.
