Inns were at the very centre of their respective communities,
providing conviviality and shelter, food and drink, and a safe
place to share stories and ideas. Come walk with us where you will
meet some of the people who traversed the grounds of Montgomery’s
Inn and neighbouring Thomas Riley Park. Stories include the
Montgomerys who operated the Inn for 25 years, Chinese market
gardeners like Willie Chung who was born at the Inn in 1937 and
Joshua Glover whose flight to freedom along the underground railway
would galvanize the abolitionist movement in the United States and
inspire the formation of the Republican Party.
