Todmorden Mills was once a small industrial community that provided lumber, flour, beer and bricks to the growing city of Toronto. Today, this historic site consists of four in situ structures: two historic houses, the former Brewery building as well as the renovated and fully accessible Papermill Theatre and Gallery. Adjoining the site is a 9.2 hectare wildflower preserve with a walking trail that explores a number of natural habitats, including: upland and bottomland forests, dry and wet meadows, swamp lands and a pond.
Visitors can discover the lives of Toronto working families as seen through the two historic homes restored to the 1890s and wartime 1940s. Tours are scheduled for both days. The Papermill Theatre is only open on Saturday, May 26. FREE.
