The Grange

Built in 1817 for D’Arcy Boulton Jr. and his wife Sarah Anne, The Grange was the first home of the Art Gallery of Ontario and is now a national historic site.

In 1875, Hariette, widow of William Henry Boulton, married scholar and journalist Goldwin Smith. The Smiths continued to live in The Grange until their deaths when the house was left by Harriette in her will to the Art Museum of Toronto, now the AGO. The Grange also houses the Norma Ridley Members’ Lounge, a full service café, and art space.
