Upcoming Events


Heritage York Celebrates Canada/Ontario/Toronto 150

Heritage York has held several events in 2017 to highlight the importance of Lambton House in this significant year. Lambton House is the last structure from the 1860s milling/industrial era remaining in place on the east bank of the lower Humber River. Sir William Pearce Howland was an owner of the businesses of Lambton Mills and Lambton House in the pre-Confederation 1860s.

Sir William was the only American-born, naturalised Canadian Father of Canadian Confederation, a leading politician and businessman of the Confederation period, Ontario’s first full-term Lieutenant Governor 1868 – 1873 and the father of two Mayors of Toronto. His great grandson William Goldwin Howland was Ontario’s Chief Justice.

Please join us for one or more of our up-coming events and for tours on Sundays between 12:30 – 4:00 p.m.; please check our voice mail message in case of any changes to these hours.

Come to Lambton House and enjoy a great opportunity to gather with friends in this unique, historic (1860s) former stage coach stop and tavern.

Exhibition in Howland Room

“Through the Lens of Geraldine Moodie,” a selection of historic Northwest Territory photographs of people and places, is on display at Lambton House. Moodie was born in Toronto in 1854, to Charles and Agnes Moodie Fitzgibbon. She is a descendant of an early Ontario pioneer family. In 1886 she travelled west with her children and husband, then a career officer in the North West Mounted Police.

Geraldine Moodie became western Canada’s first female professional photographer, documenting settlers and Indigenous peoples of the Canadian plains and sub-Arctic. Her ethnographic pictures of families and colonization taken in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century are appreciated for their sensitivity and beauty.

In 1931 Geraldine Moodie was elected to the National Geographic Society. On March 22, 2013, Geraldine Moodie’s photograph of “Koo-tuck-tuck” was released as a stamp in the Canadian photography series.

Displays in Humber Room

A display, “Arctic Artifacts,” of art and tools from Nunavut plus noteworthy and replica maps accompany “Through the Lens of Geraldine Moodie.”
