Mr.Fegan's Boys House, 295 George Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

A 'Receiving Home', was established in 1886 at 295 George Street Toronto. This was a boarding house for Irish, English and Scottish immigrant boys under one Mr. Fegan, who helped the young lads get on their feet after their arrival in Canada. The noted William Gooderham (of Gooderham and Worts Distillery fame) left the property as well as a large sum of money to Fegan after his death. From there the boys would be found a placement on a farm. Regular visits were made to the boys up to the age of 21, to check on their wellbeing and to make sure the placement was working out appropriately.
