Osgoode Hall, built in 1832, is located at Queen St. and University Ave., in downtown Toronto. Named for William Osgoode, the first Chief Justice of Upper Canada (Ontario), this landmark locale housed the first law school in Ontario, Osgoode Hall Law School (1889), as well as the regulatory body for lawyers in Ontario.
In 1837-1843 the hall was used as barracks. In 1979 the building was designated a National Historic Site of Canada.
Prior to the 17th century, the area would have been inhabited by First Nations people including the Mississaugas, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples.
Despite many renovations and additions the Hall remains a fine example of the stately Palladian style.
Many graduates of Osgoode Hall look back fondly on their time in its hallowed halls, but perhaps none so much as a group of students in the 1950’s that tried unsuccessfully to squeeze a cow inside.
