LEASIDE First settled by John Lea in 1819, it was his son William who built an eight-sided Octagon shape house named "Leaside".  It is still there today near the Leaside Memorial Gardens.  This Toronto Neighbourhood has been called LEASIDE ever since.

'The Town of Leaside' was incorporated in 1913 by the Canadian Northern Railway, and The Leaside Junction Station was built in 1894.  This is when 'LEASIDE' became a name and location on the map.  But Leaside's status as a Town ended in 1967 when it became part of the Borough of East York, which has since amalgamated with the City of Toronto. It was the first 'planned on paper' town in Ontario.
