    Places
    Toronto, Hogg's Hollow
    Toronto, Hogg's Hollow
    Named after James Hogg. He married in 1825 then moved to York and bought a farm and a grist mill and operated a whisky distillery. He was considered the most successful of all the millers in the valley.

    In 1856 his sons John and William, subdivided their late father's estate under the name "Hogg's Hollow". The Hogg's Hollow subdivision included one hundred and forty-one lots however only a handful of houses were actually built at this time.

    Four of the original Hogg's Hollow houses are still standing. These include two former mill workers cottages, that were relocated in 1986 to 4150 Yonge Street, where they now serve as the entrance to the Auberge du Pommier Restaurant. The other two original houses are located at number one and number five Old Yonge Street. Both of these houses have undergone extensive renovations. The Jolly Miller tavern, circa 1857, situated at 3885 Yonge Street, and the George S. Pratt House, circa 1886, located at 17 Mill Street, are the other historic landmarks in this neighbourhood.

  • Notes 
    • After graduating school he worked with his brother John in Hogg's Hollow until John's death when,  in 1870, he moved to Flesherton.

      In the Beaver Valley area of Grey County is Hoggs Falls, named after William Hogg who came to Ceylon, a small town south west of Flesherton, Ontario. Just east of Flesherton is Hoggs Falls on the Boyne River.  Hoggs Falls is over 7 meters high. Hogg referred to it as Little Falls in a newspaper advertisement in 1882. He built a sawmill there during the late 1870s.

      Hogg's sawmill burned in 1888. The remains of the sawmill still can be seen at the site. His next project was at Eugena Falls. He  built the first small electric plant in 1895. It provided power for a chopping mill and light for the towns of Eugenia and Flesherton.

      William Hogg was postmaster of Flesherton Station from 1888-06-01 to 1893.
