    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 
    • "Young Willie o' Harden has crossed the Yarrow,
      Wi' mony a hardy an' desperate man:
      The Hoggs an' the Brydens have brought him to dare you,
      For the Wild Boar of Fauldshope he strides in the van."
