Trinity College School
|Chapel destroyed in 1928 fire|
William Arthur Johnson founded Trinity College School (TCS) in his home in Weston, Ontario, in 1865. Three years later the school moved to Port Hope. A fire caused by the explosion of a coal oil lamp nearly destroyed the school in 1895. Within a year, however, it was rebuilt. In 1928 the school caught fire again. It was rebuilt a second time. Today the school is a co-educational, independent day/boarding school.
