Castle
“This castle was originally built by Sir Henry Pellatt, a wealthy financier from Toronto. He is most notably remembered for his role in brining hydroelectricity to the city for the first time. At the time of building this home, it was the largest residence in all of Canada. Sadly, at the time of his death he was nearly broke. The home has been restored by the city and now serves as a museum, event venue and historical site. It's truly a breathtaking place to visit offering views of the city skyline and beautiful grounds to enjoy.”
