    Spadina Historic House & GardensSpadina Historic House & Gardens Toronto, Canada
    The Spadina House is also known as the Spadina Museum that is a well known historic manor in Toronto, Canada that has been converted into a museum operated by the city, preserving the magnificent manor as it once looked like, although somewhat developed historically. The architecture, decor and artworks housed here reflect the contemporary styles of the 1860s to the 1930s and includes, colonial revival, Victorian, art deco, Edwardian, art nouveau and arts and crafts styles, and now after a year of renovations, the house reopened in 2010 showcasing the inter-war style of the 1920s and 1930s. Its outstanding gardens highlight both Edwardian and Victorian styles and plantings. In 1818, Dr. William Warren Baldwin would construct a lovely house on the property of 200 acres, naming it Spadina that had been derived from the native word, espadinong, which means hill or sudden rising of the land. Baldwin would design the two story wood house himself, but it would burn down in 1835, and since he was three miles from York, he moved into a house in the city and constructed a smaller country estate on the property in 1836. James Austin would purchase it in 1866, who had founded the Dominion Bank and Consumers Gas, although the property had become just 80 acres big. He would give his son, Albert William Austin the house and twenty acres in 1889, who would enlarge the house during numerous restorations and added a third floor in 1912. He would sell most of the land to the city in 1913 so that they could build the St. Clair Reservoir, and his daughter would live there after his passing in 1933. Anna Kathleen Thompson, Albert's daughter, lived in the estate from 1942 until 1982, and although it could have been sold off, she donated it to the city.
