This place has the distinction of being one of the oldest buildings that survives from the time when Toronto was orginally called York. It's current location is where the house was moved to from it's original location at Fredrick and Adelaide streets where the front of the house gave a view onto the Toronto harbour at the end of Fredrick street. In 1972 it was moved to it's current location and restored to it's original condition. The first owner of the house was Sir William Campbell who was the chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Upper Canada. Lots of history about the house and so much wrapped up in the city. Here's a brief history of Sir Campbell.
There was once again a line up to get into the building to view it's architecture and listen to people describe historical artifacts that were period to the time of the building.
There were tags posted on different building features that were key from when it was built.
The furniture was in very good shape. Not original pieces but from the same era. From chairs, desks, beds, and dining sets. All laid out for use.
Upstairs there was a small diorama from a famous trial that Sir Campbell presided over between William Lyon Mackenzie and the people that destroyed his printing press. It was a important trial, but that's another story for some one else.
Any way, a lot of old buildings to cover this week. See you tomorrow.
