Yorkville Town Hall

Yorkville Town Hall was the municipal building for the Town of Yorkville before annexation into the City of Toronto. Built in 1859-1860 by architect William Hay and his apprentice Henry Langley, the three-storey building served as an omnibus stop. The hall was located north of Bloor on Yonge Street on the west side.
The hall served as town hall until 1883 when Yorkville was annexed into Toronto. The hall became known as St. Paul's Hall and had a public library, along with various clubs and community uses. The hall survived until 1941 when it was destroyed by fire and was demolished. The town hall site is now home to a condo (and across the street from the Toronto Reference Library).
The town hall's coat of arms survives today on the front face of the Toronto Fire Services Station 312 (old TFD Station 10). The fire hall is located at 34 Yorkville Avenue and has been historically protected by the City of Toronto, after being designated as a heritage property on the City of Toronto Heritage Property Inventory on June 20, 1973.
