Built in 1857, this Georgian-style residence was a gift to William Lyon Mackenzie, grandfather of former Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King, from his followers. Mackenzie, the leader of the colonial emancipation movement in Upper Canada, had come from Scotland in 1830 to become the first mayor of the city of Toronto. You will now find a museum inside, where guides in period costumes re-enact the daily life of middle-class Toronto households in the 1860s.
