    Inside the Museums views Toronto’s heritage museums for the first time as a single community — linked by events, personalities, and function. In this special excerpt we visit Spadina House on Davenport Hill, less renowned than its ornate but much later neighbour, Casa Loma, and first erected by landowner and politician Dr. William Baldwin in 1818. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour, providing fascinating historical background and insight.
