Danforth Road was named after the contractor Asa Danforth Jr., who constructed sections of what would become Queen Street and Kingston Road. He began work in 1799 on Danforth's Road as it was originally a hundred-mile route from Scarborough to the Trent River. That thoroughfare was finished 1801 but soon turned into poor condition and was mostly replaced by the 1817 Kingston Road stagecoach route.
Danforth Avenue, called that because it was made to connect Toronto to Danforth Road, was legitimately built by the Don and Danforth Plank Road Company in 1851 to Broadview Avenue, and connecting to Kingston Road. In Scarborough, Danforth Road is a different route that connects Danforth Avenue with McCowan Road. It is possible, consequently, to stand at the crossroads of "Danforth and Danforth", i.e. Danforth Avenue and Danforth Road.
