Casa Loma

One of Canada's most famous landmarks, Casa Loma, was originally built by financier Sir Henry Mill Pellatt along the top of the escarpment that runs just above Davenport Road - the old shoreline of Lake Iroquois. E. J. Lennox was the architect, and construction on the Gothic Revival style buildings started in 1911. Across the street from the main mansion and gardens are the stables, potting shed, and the Hunting Lodge.

Casa Loma is just one of the many estates that have stood along "The Davenport Hill" in Toronto.
