Designated as a national historic site by the Government of Canada, St. Lawrence Hall was constructed in 1850. Built to serve city debutantes and the elite for social gatherings, rallies and recitals, St. Lawrence Hall was – and continues to be – recognized as a premiere 19th century building. It is truly the first social and cultural centre created for City of Toronto residents.

    I LOVED the Museum on the third floor, but wish it were better advertised... I feel like people only stumble across the basement's historic panels by accident and probably fewer people know about the exhibits upstairs! Check it out if you happen to be near the Market!

    The hall was an important venue for African Canadian activities in support of abolition. At the end of a 1851 conference, the final resolution was that Canada was the best destination for refugee African Slaves!
