John Goddard is a former magazine writer and Toronto Star reporter with a curiosity for little-known Ontario wonders. His books include Inside the Museums and, with TV’s Richard Crouse, Rock and Roll Toronto, a cheeky guide to the city’s rock and roll historic sites. He lives in Toronto.
Inside the Museum — Campbell House
Inside the Museums views Toronto’s heritage museums for the first time as a single community — linked by events, personalities, and function. In this special excerpt we visit Campbell House, 160 Queen Street West, at the northwest corner with University Avenue, where judge Sir William Campbell (the judge of William Lyon Mackenzie’s trial), built his dream home in 1822. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour of the house, providing fascinating historical background and insight.
