Built in 1850, St. Lawrence hall is one of Toronto’s oldest public building. It was designed in the Renaissance Revival style by William Thomas following the Great Fire of 1849 that destroyed a large part of the city’s core.

The third floor grand meeting hall was used for social events and by prominent speakers, performers, and musicians.

The building was restored and made            a National Historic Site in 1967.

 

Speeches start at 5:45 pm; reception to follow.

Heritage Toronto is a charitable agency committed to being the voice of Toronto’s heritage stories. We appreciate your donation.
