Historic Site Seeing

The history of the Toronto region is, in many ways, defined by the relationship early residents had with the land and the water that was the lifeblood of the communities they settled and developed.

From food supply, to energy sources and transportation along Toronto's rivers, so much of our cultural heritage is waiting to be discovered.

Toronto and Region Conservation has locations that are rich with natural and cultural heritage including the legacy of conservation pioneer Dr. Francis H. Kortright honoured at the Kortright Centre, 40 heritage buildings at Black Creek Pioneer Village and the historic water-powered Mill at Bruce's Mill Conservation area, to name a few.
