Osgoode Hall was built to house the
law courts and the Law Society of Upper Canada. It was
named for William Osgoode, first Chief Justice of Upper
Canada. Restoration of the building was completed in
1996. It won top honours in Heritage Toronto's 1997
awards for restoration of sandstone and decorative sculptural
repairs on the principal facade.
Old World Stone supplied all of the dimensional cut
stone for the project including replacement of over
100 sandstone balusters for the parapet. Sandstone from
Cleveland, Ohio was used for the project.
