Doors Open Talk: Discover Your Hidden History


May 25 @ 11:00 am 3:00 pm

About the Talk

What story is your home, street or community waiting to tell? Learn about the resources, records and techniques Heritage Toronto’s programming staff use to build stories about buildings and neighbourhoods. Providing real examples that anyone can apply to their own research, this presentation showcases practical methods to unearth the hidden histories throughout the city.

This talk will be offered twice on Saturday, May 25 as part of Doors Open 2024.

Session 1 will run from 11am to 12pm

Session 2 will run from 2pm to 3pm.
