Historical Ossington

A recent article points out Ossington’s connection to an important part of North American 20th century history, and you can own the location!  Apparently, 102 Ossington Ave, between Lower Ossington Theatre and Badlands Vintage, once housed Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassin, James Earl Ray, while he was on the lam. Now this building is for sale, and because of Ossington’s recently improved status, the asking price is quite high, $1.2 million. You’ve come a long way, Ossington! It’s interesting to learn some of the hidden history of our fine strip.
