ST. MICHAEL’S CATHOLIC CEMETERY, 1855, IS HIDDEN AWAY IN THE HIGH-RENT DISTRICT

cemetery2Saint Michael’s Catholic Cemetery is so well hidden, many locals don’t know it exists.  When Saint Michael’s was founded, it was far north of downtown TORONTO, but now finds itself amongst rows of condominiums, Victorian-era housing and high rise office buildings – in the heart of it all.  29,000 pioneering Catholics are buried here.  Subway stop: ST. CLAIR, then walk south a block to a short non-descript laneway on the west side of Yonge Street.
