Scadding Cabin 1794, Toronto's Oldest House

This 28-page booklet gives a full history of the log cabin that now sits on the grounds of Exhibition Place, moved there in 1879 by the York Pioneers.

Each book is $5.00 CAD + $2.00 Shipping & Handling (within Canada).


From Hands Now Striving to Be Free

An exciting new publication is our contribution to the celebration of the 175th anniversary of the Incorporation of The City of Toronto. From Hands Now Striving to be Free is an inventory and analysis of 94 boxes crafted by men jailed in the aftermath of the failed 1837 Rebellion of Upper Canada (cover at right). The book was written by Chris Raible, with John C. Carter and Darryl Withrow, and is liberally illustrated with photographs of the boxes.

Publishing a book so relevant to Toronto’s history fits perfectly with our motto, “Preserving the Past for the Future”, and complements the 10th anniversary theme of Doors Open Toronto, “Lit City – Toronto Stories and Settings”, a celebration of our built heritage and print culture.

Each book is $15.00 CAD + $3.00 Shipping & Handling (within Canada); order three or more copies and we will pay the postage.
