George H. Gooderham House

George Horace Gooderham house, which later became the York Club in The Annex

The George Gooderham House (presently known as The York Club), was built from 1889 to 1892 in a Romanesque style by architect David Roberts, Jr. Located at 135 St. George Street, the house was initially the residence of George Gooderham (1820–1905), a man who was of major importance in the financial, commercial, educational and cultural life of Toronto. Since 1910, the house has been occupied and run by The York Club. Crafted in red brick and portage sandstone, the house is aesthetically striking. The house is a magnificent example of its period.

The house shown here, and this description is true of the house built by George Gooderham, George Horace Gooderham's Father. It is not Geroge H Gooderham's house. See the links at the bottom of the page to view George Horace Gooderham's house.
