Welcome!

Since the 1950s, the Ontario government has installed blue & gold historic plaques around the province, of which there are now over 1,200. The Canadian government and Heritage Toronto (City of Toronto) have installed hundreds more, featuring wonderful information about "what happenened here."

In the past few years of travelling around the province, I've amassed a significant collection of plaque snapshots. This site is a way of keeping track of things I've seen, and sharing what I've learned about Ontario.
