Today we kicked off a 5 week project with @inprintca and @firststory_to #natureMW!
.
Indigenous and settled youth were joined by Jon and Vivian of First Story Toronto to explore the Indigenous history of Mimico Creek and the land surrounding Montgomery's Inn. While learning about 4 sacred plants (sage, semah, sweet grass, and cedar) we were joined by a robin snacking on some sumac, so we tried it out - if you haven't tasted sumac berries they are delicious! Stay tuned as this project unfolds...

Had a great evening learning about #Toronto #history at the #etobicokehistoricalsociety presentation by #maureenjennings - author and creator of #detectivewilliammurdoch. The boy was fanboy’ing all over the historic #montgomerysinn. @cbcmurdoch

It's day 4 of #MuseumWeek and today's theme is #professionsMW!

Day 3 of #MuseumWeek brings us to #heritageMW! As our public tours often reflect on the heritage of the Montgomery family c1840s, we thought this was a great opportunity to share some of the Inn's twentieth century heritage.
.
The first image from 1962 shows off the north facade of the Inn when it was owned by Kingsway Presbyterian Church. The second image highlights the playground of the Jack and Jill Nursery School which was operated during the later years of the church.
.
After years of public debate about the fate of the Inn, the Inn was finally restored and opened as municipally owned historic house museum. The final image from 1967 provides a view from the east of the Inn covered in scaffolding being used to facilitate the removal of the original stucco exterior finish.

As #MuseumWeek continues today's theme is #cityMW. These photos provide a glimpse of how the city has grown around Montgomery's Inn throughout the twentieth century.
.
The first image is Dundas St looking west from the bridge over Mimico Creek. A yellow arrow in the second image and a red dot in the third image indicate the location of the Inn in these later photos.

From our amazing team of volunteers, to our farmers and vendors at Market Days, women are an essential part of what makes the Inn, the Inn!
.
To kick off #MuseumWeek we are happy to announce the first theme: #womenMW ...and we even threw in some of our favourite #throwbacks because the women of Etobicoke have always been pretty incredible! 👩‍🎓👩‍🌾👩‍🍳👩‍🎨👩‍🎤💃.
