Sharon Temple National Historic Site and Museum
November 1st is City Daily Photo Theme Day and the theme this month is Landmark
Sharon Temple has been called "the birthplace of democracy in Canada" and I'm proud to say this site is right here in East Gwillimbury. The temple was built in the late 1820s by the Children of Peace (a Quaker sect), a group that believed in democratic principles based on faith, hope, charity and love.
The building is a unique structure with doors on all four sides, significant because they open to people from all four directions. This site, which also includes eight historic buildings, regularly hosts concerts and other special events. The Children of Peace loved music and the acoustics inside the temple are amazing!
