OGS, along with the broader genealogical and heritage community, has learned that the City of Toronto has a current interest in the site of the former Fegan Boys Distributing Home at 295 George St. in the City of Toronto. The structure was damaged by fire in 2012. Many of the boys passing through these walls left their mark by way of inscribing their names and the dates of their stays on the bricks. These names are still visible.
We have written a letter that requests that the City of Toronto seriously consider the historic significance of this treasure and find a way to preserve it. Click here to view the letter on theĀ OGS website.
