Casa Loma & Millionaire's Row Walking Tour, Toronto, ON

Gord and I did the Casa Loma & Millionaire's Row Walking Tour this afternoon. It was a Single Horizons event with Bill Genova.

We started at Yonge/St. Clair and finished at Bathurst/Davenport.

We walked by a lot of old houses in Toronto, including ...

Woodlawn, Toronto's second oldest residence still used as a private home.
Oaklands, part of de la Salle College, a Catholic School
Ardwold, home of the Eaton family (now condos)
Spadina House, built in 1866
Casa Loma (built in 1914)
Stable for Casa Loma
E.J. Lennox' home
(the architect who designed Casa Loma, Old City Hall and more)
Witch Hat House
Car in the driveway of Witch Hat House
First house in Wynchwood, in the 1870s

Oh my goodness!!! I love Casa Loma, it is the essence of my ultimate fantasy home! This looks to be a fantastic day for you two, and such fascinating pieces of history and architecture!

Wowoww. I would love to take this tour. I can't pick a favorite - but I think that I would love to see the inside of the Witch Hat house (after seeing the car in the driveway, looks like a fun bunch, haha)
