Description

Don’t be late for class!

The Enoch Turner Schoolhouse is the oldest school still standing in Toronto. Originally a one-room school named Ward Street School, it was established in 1848 by Enoch Turner to educate the children in his neighborhood of Corktown.

Ward Street School was the first free school in Toronto, and helped pave the way for the development of a provincially supported free school system. Today it serves as a living museum.
