The old Finch Farm is actually in the Town of Vaughan, being on the north side of the King-Vaughan townline, where Lots 1 (both east and west halves), on each concession of King Township, was given over to Vaughan by King. I believe someone in King, going back many years, thought King could avoid its share of road maintenance, snow-ploughing, etc., by giving up the tax revenue from the few farms along the north side of the townline and letting Vaughan collect what little taxes were at stake! In Vaughan, such land-fill operations to contain out-door industrial uses seem to be quite legal. Unfortunately, such operations do nothing for the bucolic appearance of King, when they are on our doorsteps.
