Whaley’s Corner, a small crossroads hamlet, developed around the intersection of the Town Line (now Winston Churchill Boulevard) and Steeles Avenue. The community was named for the Whaley family, a prominent settling family. Whaley’s Corners was home to a general store, toll gate, schoolhouse, the Mount Zion Methodist Church, a blacksmith and ashery. The community also had an early football team known as the Victorias. A cairn within the historic Mount Zion Cemetery remembers the former church and the historic hamlet of Whaley’s Corners.
