Known as “Toronto’s Own Camelot,” Casa Loma was built between 1911 and 1914 by Major General Sir Henry Pellatt. At the time of its completion, it was the largest private residence in North America and played host to lavish parties and entertainments. Casa Loma has had a long and storied history: from an opulent mansion, to a nightclub, it was even rumored to have been a government research facility during the Second World War.
Today, the mansion is home to The Queen’s Own Rifles Regimental Museum, a Toronto regiment that Pellatt joined in 1876 before rising to the rank of Commanding Officer. Now operated by the Liberty Group, Casa Loma is one of Toronto’s top tourist attractions, museums, and hospitality venues. Tours, special events, and educational programs are offered throughout the year.
