Many towns and cities in southern Ontario have beautiful, well-preserved historic buildings. Join architectural historian Marta O’Brien and discover town halls, churches, inns, libraries, post offices and other building types from more than a dozen communities, focusing on structures built before the 1950s.
The Victorian streetscapes of the commercial main streets feature intricate, human-scaled architecture designed to attract customers. The wide variety of houses range from grand mansions built for the most important people in town to farmhouses and cottages. We’ll discover examples of architectural styles no longer found in large cities like Toronto. These include Regency, designed to connect to the outdoors, and Italian Villa, with its distinctive towers. Marta will show hundreds of images of buildings and their details, including archival photographs.
