MACKENZIE HOUSE, 82 BOND STREET, WAS HOME TO TORONTO’S FIRST MAYOR – AND A REBEL

William Lyon MacKenzie was an outspoken newspaper editor, a leader of the 1837 Upper Canadian Rebellion, and following a sojourn in the United States – our city’s first mayor. Located in downtown TORONTO, the MacKenzie row-house was purchased by the community when he retired from politics. It’s now a museum featuring changing exhibitions and special events. Reputedly it’s haunted.  Website – http://www.toronto.ca/culture/mackenzie-house.htm
