Colborne Lodge

11 Colborne Lodge Dr., Toronto, ON M6R 2X3

Colborne Lodge is a historical museum located in an 1836 home in Toronto's High Park. John George Howard, an architect, engineer, and prominent Toronto citizen built this house, which became the property of the city following his death in 1890.

The home is now a museum run by the City of Toronto. The museum displays the house and furnishings of the 1800s, using much of the Howard's own furnishings and Howard art works. The museum holds an annual Harvest Festival, plus summer and march break camps for children. Annually at Hallowe'en, guides put on a "Haunted Walk" discussing legends of ghost appearances at the Lodge.
