Heritage Plaque

I love these historical plaques since they give you so much information while you are looking at the actual sight. I toured around Exhibition Place on a Sunday morning a few weeks ago and after viewing the Liberty Grand building which I showed you last week I happened upon this sign erected in 2012. I will show you the cabin tomorrow and in case you can't read this sign the cabin is the oldest known surviving house in Toronto having been built in 1794 and moved to Exhibition Place in 1879 for the first Canadian National Exhibition (CNE).

I love finding places like this. It amazes me how these old places have survived and even thrived. It's always great when there are signs available that tell the story.

I like those info signs a lot and always take pictures of them when we're touring historical places. So much good info and it really helps in our appreciation of ..and learning about .. the place. I look forward to seeing the home when you post it...glad it survived .
