Mackenzie House was the last home of Toronto’s first mayor, William Lyon Mackenzie, and is located downtown just steps from theatres, the Eaton Centre and Yonge-Dundas Square. The museum interprets urban Victorian life of the 1860s, and the evolution of democratic institutions through the lens of Mackenzie as a writer, publisher, politician and rebel.

The site includes the original three-storey brick, Greek Revival row house (originally the centre of three row houses, built circa 1858), and a one-storey addition which houses a narrow gallery space, a recreated print shop  and reception/gift shop that was added by the City in 1967.

Visit Mackenzie House and view the changing character of the neighbourhood; from Victorian row houses to modern condominiums at the heart of Canada’s largest city.
