About The Foster Memorial

The Foster Memorial itself is worthy of the visit even with out the music. This wonderful unique treasure of byzantine design is located approx 4 km north of Uxbridge on Durham 1. The solid copper roof has leaded stained glass windows. The doors are constructed of solid brass again with stained glass windows. The floor and ceiling are covered with marble mosaics with inlaid symbols There is a marble alter and the columns supporting the great arches are also marble with devon stone capitals. The structure itself is octagon in shape and built of Indiana limestone with a great central dome.

Foster was born July 24th, 1825, in Lambton Mills but was raised in the former Scott Township (now part of Uxbridge) where the family moved after his mothers passing where his father ran the Hotel in the Hamlet of Leaskdale. Later in life he would become a butcher in cabbage town, (Toronto) and serve as the Mayor of Toronto from 1925 to 1927 in addition to being elected as an MP.

The Thomas Foster Memorial is a striking contrast to the surrounding rolling farm lands. Inspired by the Taj Mahal in India and Christian Byzantine churches it was built as a resting place for Fosters wife and daughter.
