4. HOLY ANN HOUSE,
32 John St. Proceed south to John St, then west towards Yonge St. This cottage was moved from its original location near Yonge St. and Elgin St. Ann Preston (1810-1906) came from Ireland as a housekeeper to Dr. John Reid. Her piety and association with several miracles led to her being called, often derisively, Holy Ann. Pilgrims came to visit the miraculous well for its waters (see Side Trail B1). Holy Ann is buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Toronto.
