Pucky Huddle

Copeland House – Pucky Huddle

The crossroads hamlet of Pucky Huddle grew around the modern intersection of Burnhamthorpe and Tomken roads. Pucky Huddle was known as a rough-and-tumble locale, well known for John Gilleeces’s rough and tumble Pucky Huddle Tavern. The tavern’s slogan was “Bad Whiskey and Good Fellowship” and had a strong Catholic patronage. The tavern was lost to fire in 1915. The small crossroads was also home to Tolman’s Brickyard and Cosgrave’s Dairy.
