Enoch Turner Schoolhouse

Built in 1848, this charming one-room schoolhouse is one of the oldest in Toronto. Established by Enoch Turner, a wealthy local brewer, it was the city’s first free school. Today, this historical schoolhouse is owned by the Ontario Heritage Trust and operated as a provincially significant heritage site, public museum, and conference and special events venue.
