I have passed Mount Pleasant Cemetery on transit hundreds of times. It has always struck me as beautiful, and countless times I have told myself I should go see it one day. The landscaping is just so breathtaking, and it’s a massive cemetery. People spend their mornings running along the paths, or just taking a leisurely stroll, like Matt and I did yesterday morning. This cemetery holds many crypts of some prominent Toronto families – The Eatons & Masseys, to name a few. Cemeteries used to be an obsession of mine back in the goth days (typical). It’s like a goth girls home base, right?! Those days are gone, but it’s nice to find a place in the city that is calm, full of natural beauty and holds a little Toronto history.
Later on in the evening I spoke with my parents on the phone and told them we had visited the cemetery. My mom then said “Oh! Your great great grandparents & great grandparents on both sides are buried there.” I always forget that although no one in my family currently lives in Toronto, many of them spent a portion, if not all of their lives here. I never met my great greats & greats, but it would have been neat to search for their graves, and give them a quick hello. It gives me reason to go back, since it’s by no means close to where I live.
