We briefly learned about Enoch Turner and how he built this schoolhouse to help educated Irish immigrant children so they could get a better life in Toronto. Amazing building from the 1800's and a great spot to learn about "Corktown".

We attended an event here. It is an interesting piece of history with multiple placards on the walls describing the history of the building. The acoustics of the main room were terrible for music. The place can easily hold groups up to 150

Great setting in the "church" side of the building. The acoustics are wonderful for any teacher or preacher but a little challenging for a singer. Nonetheless the concert was brilliant and Phillip Addis and Emily Hamper accomplished musicians. It was so wonderful to be there...More

We attended my Niece's wedding here. Amazing! This historical School basically steps you back in time when you walk through the doors. The school room has desks and furnishings from the era and the church has beautiful windows and original architecture. This building creates an...More

Leslie: thank you for your review of the Schoolhouse - glad to hear you had such a wonderful time at your niece's wedding!

Great location for a special event. Charm of the old school house made it a very special place to hold a wedding. Both the ceremony and the reception were on site and we couldn't have asked for a better set up!

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
