  • 1 Eden Smith

    Eden Smith was born in Birmingham, England. While studying art and architecture in Birmingham, Smith was exposed to the Arts and Crafts style. He immigrated to Canada in 1885, first to Manitoba and then to Toronto in 1887. He opened an architectural office in 1891, where he designed a large number of houses, churches and public buildings. Important ecclesiastical designs include: St. John the Evangelist Anglican (Toronto, 1892, now demolished); St. Thomas Anglican (Toronto, 1892); and St. George’s Memorial (Oshawa, 1922). Smith is most noted for introducing the Arts and Crafts style to Canada. He designed several public libraries, all of which opened in 1916, as well as a large number of Arts-and-Craft-style homes in Toronto.
