  MacKenzie House
by sim1

This is the Mackenzie House, I went here to see an exhibition but unfortunately it was closed when I visited it, so I could only see it from the outside.
The Mackenzie House is the last home of William Lyon Mackenzie, leader of the 1837 Upper Canada Rebellion and Toronto's first mayor. It is a gas-lit Victorian row-house. After the death of Mackenzie and his wife, the house changed hands several times, but in 1950 the house was opened to the public. The house has a fully-functional 19th-century printshop, similar to the one Mackenzie used to publish newspapers. The gallery wing, built in 1967, has changing exhibits. Costumed staff give demonstrations of 19th century life.
