Distillery 190: A Photo Exhibit Across the Ages

To celebrate 190 years of the National Historic Site known as The Distillery Historic District, we’ve curated 25 sets of archival photographs to visually tell the story of this 13-acre collection of Victorian-era industrial buildings.

From the architecture, to the businesses, to the fascinating people who worked here and roamed the streets, journey back in time and see the incredible transformation this space has undergone since it was founded in 1832 by distilling company Gooderham and Worts.
