Sitting atop Davenport Hill, this is one of several museums operated by the City of Toronto. It was built in 1866, and offers three tours – one of special interest to children. The rooms are furnished in styles from the 1860’s to the 1930’s.
The House is surrounded by immaculate Victorian and Edwardian gardens. It’s located adjacent to Casa Loma and the stables, with some of TORONTO’s finer homes nearby. Nordheimer Ravine and its walking trail, Ardwold Gate, Winston Churchill Park and St. Clair Reservoir are within easy walking distance. It’s a short drive or walk to Forest Hill Village.
The Museum is open Tuesday to Friday, noon-4 pm; Saturday and Sunday, noon-5 pm.
Subway stop: DUPONT, and then walk northwest uphill, or ST. CLAIR subway stop, and then streetcar #512 westbound to Spadina Road, and walk south.
