The mansion on the hill, Casa Loma is a mansion and garden that is situated in Midtown Toronto, Canada. The mansion which is considered to be a landmark in Toronto was built from 1911 to 1914 as a residence for financier Sir Henry Pallet, designed by architect E.J Lennox. It was built to a Gothic Revival style and is impressive in its detailing. The mansion was seized for unpaid taxes in 1924 and was left unused for a number of years but its stables were used during World War Two as a sonar research and production centre. At that point, the building was owned by Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma who used the building as a tourist attraction up until around 2011. Today, the mansion is owned by Liberty Entertainment Group and the building is still a tourist attraction and event venue with many people marrying at the splendid mansion.
