Casa Loma & The Second City Giveaway
Casa Loma, Toronto
Step back in time as you explore Casa Loma, the former estate of Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, a prominent Toronto financier, industrialist and military man. An unabashed romantic, Sir Henry engaged the noted architect E.J. Lennox to help him realize a life-long dream – the creation of a ‘medieval’ castle on the brow of a hill overlooking Toronto. Begun in 1911, it took 300 men nearly 3 years to complete and cost $3,500,000 at that time. Sir Henry enjoyed Casa Loma for less than 10 years before financial misfortune forced him to abandon his castle home.
Your class will enjoy a self guided tour and learn about this intriguing legacy of an extraordinary Canadian.
WINNER: LOUISE FORSTER
