Drawing Room Fireplace
"This fine Second Empire style house was built for George Brown between 1874 and 1876. The elegance of his residence reflects his prominence as a Father of Confederation, founder of the Globe newspaper (now The Globe and Mail) and a leading Liberal politician.
The house was declared a National Historic Site in 1976; a decade later it was threatened with demolition. The Ontario Heritage Trust intervened, restoring and re-opening the house in 1989 for use as a conference centre with tenant offices on the upper floors.
The house is one of the best-preserved and documented urban examples of the Second Empire residential style in Ontario. The Ontario Heritage Trust restored the building to its original 1876 construction date to preserve the heritage character of the building, to commemorate George Brown’s role in Canada’s history and to make the site financially viable through the revenues generated from office space, conference facilities, weddings and film shoots.
History of the building
Orginally named Lambton Lodge, the house was built for George Brown, a successful businessman, his wife Anne and their three children. Duncan Coulson, president of the Bank of Toronto, occupied the house from 1889 to 1916 with his wife Eliza and three children. The Coulsons remodeled the dining room in the Art Nouveau style. Following Coulson’s death, the house was purchased by the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and used as office space. Around this time, a three-story school for the blind was built at the back of the house. This school was later used to educate developmentally-challenged children until it was demolished in 1984. The replacement school now wraps respectfully around the restored George Brown House property.
The Ontario Heritage Trust researched and restored the house between 1987 and 1989. A Victorian library has been recreated by the federal government and now houses 2,000 of George Brown’s personal books. A new Victorian-inspired garden was planted in the summer of 2000 – the first project funded by a donation to the Trust’s Heritage Garden Conservatory Fund. Thanks to a partnership with the University of Toronto Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design and a generous donation by the Rotman Family Foundation, the gardens at George Brown House flourish.
The gracious 9,000-square-foot house features walls four bricks thick, sandstone trim and slate roof. The floor plan is a centre hall style. Highlights include:
– Walnut canopies over the doors in the entrance hall featuring sculpted lions from the Brown family coat of arms
– 15 fireplaces; including one in the drawing room feauturing a marble mantle with the entwined initals of George and Anne Brown
– Restored Art Nouveau dinning room, as remodeled by the Coulsons around 1890
– Original fine plaster cornices and ceiling medallions; authentically reproduced faux finishes throughout
– Leaded glass windows (1880s) in the main hall, removed when the house was threatened with demolition and returned in 1989 after they were discovered hanging in a Toronto home"
Basilique-Cathedrale Notre-Dame-de-Québec – 2008 – 400e 043
The history of my family is closely tied to this Cathedral-Basilica. Many weddings, funerals and christenings (baptisms) occured on this site within the walls of the two original Basilicas which burned previously to the construction of this one. Over the centuries, its name changed several times from the original name it had at the beginning of the early French colonies as: Notre-Dame-de-la-Paix. It is the site which marked many religious events of the early French colony. . .
Here, indeed, in 1669, upon the pages of its original records (which were fortunately saved from the fires) is where the very first marriage of a noble and royal lineage was first recorded in Canadian history – in my own family.
Among the vestiges left of the original church is a red ceiling lamp and a small altar from the first original church.
It is worthy to note that among the members of my ancestral lines (on my father’s side) – was an extremely talented family – the ‘Levasseur’ – they were the sculptors who gave this place of worship its beautiful sculpted baldaquin capony over the main altar all finished in gold leaf with an episcopal throne canopy for the Cardinal to match the setting. . .
The tomb of Monseigneur Francois de Montmorency Laval – first Bishop of Quebec is also found here – his real name was: Francois de Laval-Montigny.
