Inside the Museum — Gibson House

Overview

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 Gibson House, between Sheppard and Finch Avenues, where David Gibson, a leader of the 1838 Rebellion of Upper Canada, lived in this house built in 1851 on his York Township farm. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour of the house, providing fascinating historical background and insight.
