Danforth Road was given its name after the contractor Asa Danforth Jr., who built portions of what would become Queen Street and Kingston Road. He started work in 1799 on Danforth Road as it was previously a hundred-mile route from Scarborough to the Trent River. That road was completed 1801 but soon became in poor condition and was mostly swapped out by the 1817 Kingston Road stagecoach route.
Danforth Avenue was called that because it was made to link Toronto to Danforth Road. It was built by the Don and Danforth Plank Road Company in 1851 to Broadview Avenue, and linking to Kingston Road. In Scarborough, Danforth Road is another route which connects Danforth Avenue with McCowan Road.
