Doors Open - Workers' Syndicate Housing

79 Bower St.

Acton, ON



History & heritage

Travel back in time and enjoy some original features of a home that is humble yet grand. In 1882, prompted by the exceptional need for workers' housing in Acton, ten charming brick tenements of excellent quality and architectural detail were built. Excerpt from Acton's Early Days: "There have been the scenes of much happy home life, and will continue to be. They have housed preachers and teachers; business men and professionals; manufacturers and employees; tradespeople and retired folk; young and old; none excessively rich, and no needy poor. Many citizens of high character have had them for home; and never was there a man arrested there for crime in the all the years."

This event is free.
