Welcome to the website of the Foundation whose mission it is to foster the memory of the oldest free school in Toronto and the man who was responsible for its existence, Enoch Turner.

Our mission is also to help the Ontario Heritage Trust to preserve the Schoolhouse in its original condition, so that it will continue to inspire thousands of visitors every year.

In 2023, the Enoch Turner Schoolhouse Foundation and Ontario Heritage Trust celebrate the 175th anniversary of  the Schoolhouse and the role it played in the development of a provincially supported free school system.
