There have been many meeting places for Ontario's Parliament throughout the province’s history, including three purpose-built structures prior to the current Legislative building in Toronto known as Queen’s Park. This paper will address the archaeological investigations of these buildings since the Ontario Heritage Trust has recently acquired the archaeological collections. The Trust owns a portion of the First Parliament site and has interest in conserving in situ and interpreting the significant archaeological resources located on the site to the highest standards incorporating modern interpretive solutions. The development of interpretive resource collections will also be discussed.
