Crescent Town can trace its roots back to 1887 when Walter Massey – The son of Hart Massey, Canada’s first major industrialist – purchased a 240 acre country property centered around Dawes Road and Victoria Park Avenue.
The Massey farm was named Detonia after Mrs. Massey’s family whose surname was Denton. The Massey farm sold fresh eggs and poultry as well as fresh trout which was caught in the many streams and rivulets that criss-crossed the farm. The Massey farm was also the home of the City Dairy Company which produced the first pasteurized milk in Canada.
