We were able to see a little of the interior through the locked doors. It would have been nice to go inside but we enjoyed what we were able to see. Appears to only be... More

During the Depression, former Toronto Mayor Thomas Foster, helped to stimulate the economy by spending $250,000. Was this a monument to Foster's ego or a huge benefit to the community? I think some of both. Regardless, this is a stunning building inspired by Fosters visit to the Taj Mahal. Foster, his wife and daughter (who was only ten when she... More

A real gem within the countryside of rural Uxbridge. Enjoy the magnificence of Thomas Foster's final resting place amidst the gold mosaics, stunning architecture and rolling seven second echo.

A small yet beautiful mausoleum built in 18th century by Thomas Foster is a hidden gem and a must see historic site beautiful and very interesting. There is a donation of 5$ each for adults to take a brief tour of the grounds and inside. Travis gave a well detailed and interesting account of the history and it's architecture. Thanks.... More

Absolutely beautiful place - great views of local countryside, beautiful building, exquisite marble, frescos, stone pillars, domed roof, stained glass. A piece of Byzantium nestled in rolling hills of Ontario farm counrty. An hour from Toronto - it's a destination NOT to be missed.

This is like stepping into Yesterday and Far Away. This memorial was beautifully designed and built for the wife and young daughter of Thomas Foster - former mayor of Toronto. It's worth a lovely drive in the country and then to happen upon this. Plan your drive for a weekend when the Memorial is open or for a Saturday night... More

At least that was my first impression. However once you step inside you'll see that this building draws from numerous artistic styles and really stands out as something unique and special. From the floor to the roof the detail and artistry is exquisite. My favourite part would have to be the colourful floral motifs stretching up to the central dome.... More
