A portrait of William Lyon Mackenzie stares from the walls at Queen Subway Station, his face as round and orange as a wheel of cheese.

He served as Torontos first mayor, led the 1837 Rebellion of Upper Canada, and was grandfather to William Lyon Mackenzie King, Canadas tenth prime minister, whose own orange-pink face graces the Canadian $50 bill.

Three blocks from the station, Mackenzie died in the upstairs bedroom of a house now open as a heritage museum, part of a network of historic homes and other buildings from early Toronto. Inside the Museums tells their stories. We learn how James Scott Howard lost his job as Torontos first postmaster and why John G. Howard who deeded High Park to the city was so anxious to be remembered, why Eliza Gibson risked her life to save a clock, and why Spadina House has always been tinged by the original owners unhappy relationship.
