Stagecoach to from Montreal to The first journey of the stagecoaToronto in 1806
The first journey of the stagecoach from Montreal to Toronto took place in 1806. The stagecoach and cal챔che traveled along the Montreal Road, wich is now Lakeshore Drive. That was the main Montreal/Toronto highway until the mid 1940's. In the 1820's the traveller from Montreal to Toronto had to board a steamer at Kingston for the balance of the journey. The complete trip, one way, took about twelve to fifteen days.
