New village landmark in King City

Photo by Barry Wallace
If you're planning to have lunch or dinner in the front patio of Hogan's Inn, on Keele Street in King City, be prepared to share the space with this charming, almost-to-scale, horse and rider.   The lovely statue serves to underscore Hogan's horsey heritage as a 19th century hotel stable and a scheduled stop for the horse-carriage service from the train station, at the south end of the village, to the centre of the village.   The carriage service was particularly useful to shoppers returning to King Township from shopping in Toronto and to travelling salesmen laden down with their wares and samples.
Please comment if you wish.

  1. This is really neat. Do you know who made the statue? Hope someone local like Brett Davis. He makes beautiful bronze sculptures. The Lloydtown Rebel statue is one of them.
