Doors Open - Enoch Turner Schoolhouse

Today we went to Enoch Turner Schoolhouse. It was built in 1848. Enoch Turner paid for the construction of the schoolhouse and gave money to run it for the first few years. It was the first free school in Toronto. 

I got to sit in one of the desks.

There was a stove in the room. It would have been used for heating.

There was information about the history of the school but there anybody there that could show us around or answer questions. 

This room looks like it would be nice for a piano recital.

Here's a link to more information about the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse.
