Favorite thing: Located right across the street from our Hotel and just off of King Street, the Anglican Church of Canada's ST. JAMES CATHEDRAL is absolutely beautiful. There is a plaque just outside the cathedral which reads: "York's first church was built here in 1803-07 with the aid of public subscriptions and a government grant. That frame building was enlarged in 1818-19 and replaced by a larger one in 1831. The second church was burnt in 1839. Toronto's first Cathedral was then erected on this site, but was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1849. The present Cathedral was begun in 1850, opened for divine service in 1853 and completed in 1874."
