    Take a tour of the home plus attend an event. Small and informative. There is a tea party in the gardens in the summers and I have enjoyed the free bagpipes playing outside in the evenings.

    Went on the Brooklyn tour with Jay starting at the boathouse. The group that showed was about eight. It is styled like a European walking tour! Jay provides tidbits about the local area pointing things I've never known about the neighborhoods. His storytelling and theatrical background are quite evident when he reveals the history and daily life of the time.

    The tour was an easy stroll and would be accessible to everyone, comfortable walking shoes and maybe some bug spray.

    Will be attending another tour very soon! Can't wait for another signature Jaywalking tour with Jay!

    Hidden Guelph Gem

    This is the remains of the mill built in 1866 by James Goldie on the shores of the Speed River. It is located on the site of two previous mills which were both destroyed by fire the earliest being a sawmill built in 1827.


    Goldie Mills was one the leading flour manufacturers in Canada and was a major employer in Guelph. It continued in operation up to 1929 at which time flooding took out the dam. In 1953 fire destroyed the buildings. The Grand River Authority now maintains the site and a lovely park has been built around it.

    This is the house built by John Maclean in which he lived in his retirement from the Hudson Bay Company. There is a sign outside giving some basic facts about him. He was an active fur trader and quite an explorer who had an adventurous life which included hardship and drama. Worth looking into his history and the possibility that he falsely admitted theft from a bank to help a friend? I do not think you can actually go in.
