Guildwood Village’s history revolves around The Guild Inn. Rosa and Spencer Clark founded the Guildwood Inn in 1932 as a retreat for craftsmen and artists. Known back then as "The Guild of All Arts", the Inn featured studios and workshops. Set atop the Scarborough Bluffs it provided peace and tranquility to all its patrons. During World War II the Inn was initially used as an official naval base called "HMCS Bytown I”. Later on it was used as a specialized military hospital known as "Scarborough Hall." The Guild Inn was returned to its owners the Clarks after the war. At this time its popularity soared to new heights. Rising taxes in the 1950’s pushed the Clarks to sell 400 acres of their property. This property was sold to developers who used it to build the present day Guildwood Village neighbourhood. The Metropolitan Toronto and Region Conservation Authority purchased the remainder of the Guild Inn estate in 1978. This preserved its picturesque beauty for future generations to admire, enjoy and explore.
