Scadding Cabin is under threat again today.  Rot has re-appeared, and significant restoration work is being urgently undertaken to prevent long-term damage. The cost is substantial - preserving and protecting Scadding Cabin will cost thousands of dollars.

We can’t do it alone – we need the financial support of people who value our history – people who want to preserve the past for the future.  We need the support of people like you. Your tax-receipted charitable donation today of $100, $75, $50, or $20 – your donation of any amount in response to this appeal will be used exclusively to protect Scadding Cabin. Please join us today to help preserve Toronto’s oldest house.
