HISTORY

The Distillery District, named after the Gooderham and Worts Distillery that was built on the site in 1859 is the largest and best-preserved collection of Victorian Industrial Architecture in North America. In 1832, James Worts and William Gooderham founded their company and it soon grew to be widely known as the largest distillery in the world. In 1859, the present day buildings were built and they still survive, as they were, today.
