Campbell House, Toronto, Ontario

I took this picture of Campbell House, while I was in Toronto last weekend. The Advocates' Society can take a great deal of pride in their restoration and continued maintenance of Campbell House. The Advocates' Society website says,

The founders of The Advocates' Society envisioned premises that would foster camaraderie among the members. The acquisition and restoration of Campbell House fulfilled that goal. The former home of Sir William Campbell, Chief Justice of Upper Canada from 1824-1829, was moved on March 31, 1972 from Frederick Street to its present location at University and Queen to become the new headquarters of the Society. Society members restored and refurbished the house and in late spring of l974 the Queen Mother presided over the official opening. Campbell House provides a comfortable and convenient location for our members to relax with their peers.
