HERITAGE HOMES

Boynton House
The Boynton House (circa 1875) and is recognized as a historic site designated under the Ontario Heritage Act. It's a good example of a classic Ontario farmhouse, with a steep centre gable decorated with curvilinear bargeboards (gingerbread trim) and a gothic window with interlacing tracery. The exterior of the patterned brick house has been slightly altered since T.F. Boynton’s time, except for an Edwardian Classic Style veranda added by his son, Thomas Edward in the early 1900s. The Boynton farmhouse stands on its original site in the midst of the Richmond Green Park, and is a reminder of the site’s early history.

Boynton House is located on the grounds of Richmond Green Park and sits just beside the Sports Complex.

The Richmond Hill Heritage Centre
Set in picturesque Amos Wright Park, the Richmond Hill Heritage Centre is an 1840's Regency style cottage, fully restored to reflect this historical period. The house was the original home of Amos Wright, the first Reeve of Markham Township.

When planning your visit to the Heritage Centre, don't forget your picnic basket and take the opportunity to stroll through the park. The beautiful gardens include herbs, heritage plants and of course, roses, a flower of great historical significance for Richmond Hill.

MUSEUMS

Museum of the Streets
Museum of the Streets is a new kind of museum experience taking away the four walls of the traditional museum and opening up the heritage of the Town for all to see. It is a journey of discovery and visitors are their own tour guide. Signage and an accompanying self-guided tour booklet show the obvious – and sometimes the not-so-obvious – signposts to the area's fascinating past.

The Museum of the Streets has been designed to allow visitors to do as much or as little as they wish, at any given time. This innovative museum is always open and free of charge outside of either time and / or interest in the Town.
