York Mills is the name for the area around Yonge Street and York Mills Road in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Part of the area is also known as Hogg's Hollow, named for James Hogg, a Scottish settler who settled in the area in 1824, by his sons John and William in 1856.
The area name is linked to saw and grist mills that dotted the Don River, which flows through York Mills. The Town of York Mills became part of the Township of North York. North York later became a borough, and then a city, and was merged with five other municipalities and a regional government to form the new "City of Toronto" in 1998.
The area was the site of a tragic accident on March 17, 1960, when five Italian construction workers died in a subway tunnel accident.
Today, the area is home to luxury condos and high end homes. As well, the area once linked by radial railways and Highway 11, now can be reached via Highway 401, GO Transit, and Toronto Transit Commission buses and York Mills station on the Yonge-University Spadina subway line.
