I think I was here once before, but can't remember when and why I was here, but that was maybe 40 years ago. Actually here twice in one day. Dropped in to catch our friend perform with her singing group, then came again that night...More

Well, I'm glad we were able to get you through the gates! The Sharon Temple is a building to hear music played in, I'm so glad you had the opportunity to experience it. We hope it isn't another 40 years before we see you again!

Exceptional historic site. Temple itself is stunning and set on lovely grounds with old trees. Outbuildings hold exhibits and both log cabin and the homestead are fully appointed with lots of furnishings to give a real sense of how people lived. History is so interesting....More

The Sharon Temple is an hour's drive north of Toronto in the village of Sharon. The structure architecturally reproduces the religious beliefs of the Children of Peace, a now-vanished Quaker sect. Built between 1825-1832. Visually, intellectually and philosophically interesting.

The Sharon Temple is a piece of history tucked on a beautiful shaded property. There are several historical buildings. Some with people there to explain the workings or life styles of the past. A step back in history just minutes away.

A very knowledgeable young lady took us through the site. Her enthusiasm was refreshing and brought the temple and its history to life. Wonderful to see that part of our Canadian history has not only survived but is being refurbished.More

We were the only visitors on a quiet Sunday. Teens are generally not keen on this sort of thing but there were quite a few "wows" regarding the architecture. The staff member that greeted us made it special with her in-depth knowledge of the Temple...More
