Coming up at Heintzman Place !
The West Toronto Junction Historical Society presents a historical talk show recreating the grand days of the Heintzman Piano Factory once on the site of Heintzman Place. We will meet the legendary characters that created the Junction as a village, town and then a city before it joined Toronto. See why WTJHS is one of the most innovative and exciting historical societies in the city — and meet descendants of the Heintzman family with personal memories of the piano dynasty.
Sunday, Nov 20, 3:30 pm, in the Multi-Purpose room at 60 Heintzman St. following the Heintzman Place Board of Directors Meet and Greet event.
