The Guild Inn, Scarborough,Ont. From You Tube.
Significant features of Scarborough include the scenic Rouge River and the spectacular geology of the SCARBOROUGH BLUFFS, which rise 100 metres above Lake Ontario and stretch 15 kilometres along the lakeshore. Scarborough is also home to the Toronto Zoo. Taber Hill Ossuaries, an Iroquoian burial site, was discovered in 1956 during excavations for a housing subdivision. The SCARBOROUGH MUSEUM, sitting on land once owned by the Thomson family, interprets Scarborough's rural and immigrant experiences.
