A Model City
This scale model of Toronto in 1837 is located in the Town of York Historical Society’s museum at Toronto’s First Post Office, and has been a major point of interest for thousands of museum visitors since it was unveiled on October 28, 1992.
We remain grateful to the many individuals who helped finance the model by purchasing individual properties, and to the various young people who researched and described the major features of the nascent city of Toronto. Their work brings early Toronto to vivid life and adds immeasurably to understanding today's neighbourhood.
