This is a well preserved house and the oldest in North York, just off Yonge St. It gives a very good idea of what life was like for the well-to-do almost 200 years ago. Visit the nearby 150 year old apple tree in Gibson Square.

Gibson house is a small house that shows that days living style. There was a guide who guide us throw the house and explain everything for us. The ticket price is about 6$ that really worth it.
