When planning an event, the largest portion of the budget is usually dedicated to location. Reserving rooms at a banquet hall or the grounds of any sprawling garden of an historical monument in your town or city costs a pretty penny. Moreover, it is not always easy to choose the perfect venue to host gatherings like a wedding reception, birthday party or corporate event.

The Argonaut Rowing Club is one of the most popular clubs in the city of Toronto. Located on the banks of Lake Ontario, this Club provides fantastic views of the western side of Exhibition Place. Founded in 1872 by amateur rowers, the Argonaut Rowing Club is one of the largest and oldest clubs in Canada. It is considered to be a historic site in the city, and a quite popular wedding venue. The clubhouse, being made of bricks from the 1800s, is the ideal backdrop for wedding photographs.

Since some of the club members are prominent local ice hockey and football players, it’s no surprise that sports-based events can likewise be hosted here. One of the best features of the club is the 4000 meter watercourse. It runs along the western side of the club, and forms the mouth of the Humber River, providing the ideal background for casual and semiformal events.

Before you book any rooms, determine the number of invited guests, and estimate how many people you believe will actually attend. This will help you narrow down the choice of rooms available to you within the club. You must also take into account the amount of space required by the catering company for food set-up. This is quite an important factor in the choice of rooms that will be available to you. With professional catering and decorative rooms, your gathering can be specified to your liking.

It is possible to reserve several banquet halls and rooms of the club while keeping well within your budget. Whatever your stipulated costs, you can rest assured that your party will be a smashing success at the historical Argonaut Rowing Club.

Heintzman house

The Heintzman House (circa 1817), also known as Sunnyside Manor Farm, is one of the oldest buildings in Thornhill- Markham, and has one of the most interesting histories of any building in the area. The earliest mudhouse on record in the province, the house is constructed of adobe brick, fired brick and frame construction. The central five bays are the oldest portion of the house, which includes the adobe brick construction.

The Yonge Street Crown Grant property (Lot 32, Concession 1, Markham) was awarded to United Empire Loyalist, Anthony Hollingshead in July of 1798. Hollingshead, originally from New Jersey, was a veteran of the American Revolutionary War, serving as an officer with the 3rd New Jersey Volunteers under the command of General Courtland Skinner.

Prior to receiving the patent (final property deed), Crown Grant recipients had to complete settlement duties which included clearing land for cultivation, building a home no less than 16 feet by 20 feet in size, and clearing the land facing Yonge Street for use as a public road. Settlers were given two years to complete their duties, extensions were often granted. Anthony, his wife Elizabeth, son Anthony Jr., including a daughter, her husband and child all made their home in a modest two- room, one-half storey adobe brick farmhouse. Portions of the adobe farmhouse are believed to have been incorporated into the existing house, which has seen several additions and changes over the past many years.

Today, a Board of Directors appointed by the Town of Markham manages the Heintzman House. The house is rented by local organizations, used for business meetings, has been used in commercial and film work, and is a popular venue for wedding parties and receptions.
