About Colborne Lodge

Colborne Lodge, a nineteenth-century Regency-era lakeside summer cottage, was built by two painters, John and Jemima Howard, one also an architect and engineer. The Lodge still holds original collections of the Howards’s art, architectural drawings, and inventions as well as stories of their eccentric lives – from science, technology, and medicine to illness, adultery, and reported hauntings. Through a partnership with First Story Toronto, Colborne Lodge now includes Indigenous narratives and stories, where Indigenous guides embark on a truth-telling journey through their own lens. Nearly 200 years later, Colborne Lodge is an active hub for community events in High Park.
