Plaque Text

This family chapel on the former estate of Upper Canada's first Lieutenant-Governor, John Graves Simcoe, was given to the people of Ontario by Sir Geoffrey Harmsworth. At a ceremony held on September 27, 1966, the Honourable John P. Robarts, Prime Minister of Ontario, accepted the deed to the chapel and grounds from Sir Geoffrey and title to an essential right-of-way from Mr. A.G. LeMarchant.
