Berkeley St. – Wesleyan Methodist Church – Toronto
The weekend before Christmas I had to make a last minute business trip to Toronto. Since Honey was already on her holiday break and didn’t have any major plans we decided to combine business with pleasure and make the trip together.
Though a little rainy, the weather was very mild for late December so most of our free time together away from my meetings was spent exploring downtown and Old Town Toronto on foot; something I had never done despite at least a dozen previous trips there over the years.
Ahh, the things we take for granted…or perhaps I should say: the things we don’t even realize we’re missing until we get out of the darn car and explore a little on foot.
While walking around the south-eastern part of Old Town we stumbled across some old beauties like this place:
Located on Queen Street East in one of the oldest parts of the city, Berkeley Church was built in 1871 and has been a designated Ontario Heritage site since 1997 to protect it from future redevelopment or demolition.
Though no longer used as a church, today the building is probably seeing more activity than ever. Now an event venue that’s available for rent for a variety of functions, it hosts up to 150 corporate and private events per year, according to their website.
Though we did not go inside, I walked around and captured what I thought were several of its best old doors:
This side courtyard door leading to the basement was my favorite:
As always, thanks for looking 🙂
