Town of York Historical Society (Virtual): Toronto’s 188th Birthday
March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$32.84
Celebrate Toronto’s 188th birthday!
Join us as we gather to celebrate the 188th anniversary of Toronto’s incorporation as a city.
Featuring presentations by:
DON LOUCKS! Don Loucks is an architect, urban designer, and cultural heritage planner, with forty years of project experience. He is committed to environmental, economic, and cultural sustainability, and to preserving the variety of rich urban forms that contain the stories of our communities’ history. Don is the co-author of Modest Hopes: Homes and Stories of Toronto’s Workers from the 1820s to the 1920s.
MORGAN CAMERON ROSS! Founder and host of the Old Toronto series, Morgan Cameron Ross struggled with his appreciation of Toronto. As a Vancouver native, Ross was raised with preconceived notions about the city – and largely believed them – that was until he moved to Toronto in 2005 and fell in love with the place. Ross is now one of the most fervently supportive and excited fans of Toronto and has grown his Old Toronto project from a wee little Instagram account to an all encompassing Toronto historical project that never stops loving the city.
With special appearances from the staff of Toronto’s First Post Office and Campbell House Museum.
And featuring the famous Old Town Silent Auction!

This year, our annual fundraiser will be presented virtually, allowing our viewers and participants to join us remotely and take part in the celebration from the safety and comfort of your homes. While we regret that we cannot celebrate together at St. Lawrence Hall, be assured that yours will be the best seat in the house!
The aim of the event is to fundraise for the Town of York Historical Society and Toronto’s First Post Office whose purpose is researching, interpreting, and promoting the history of the Town of York and early Toronto, and to advocate on behalf of the preservation of the Town of York’s surviving built environment.
