Colborne Lodge is a rare Regency picturesque cottage and a graceful monument to John and Jemima Howard, the couple who founded High Park. John Howard, one of Toronto's first architects, as well as a City engineer and surveyor, built Colborne Lodge in 1837.
Drop in and view the many original furnishings and artifacts and some of John Howard's own watercolours depicting images of early Toronto.
Colborne Lodge is one of 10 historic sites operated by the City of Toronto. Toronto's Historic Sites engage visitors, inspire passion, challenge ideas and connect the past to the present.
Additional land was purchased by the City in 1876 and 1930, expanding the park to the current 399 acres. The Howards are buried under a stone monument that is fronted by a portion of fencing from St. Paul's Cathedral in London, and is set close to Grenadier Pond.
