When you look at the modern design of the Restaurant you would not think that it is located in a historical building. But it is! The original building - Jackson's Farmouse was built in 1815 on a farm which at that time had 100 acres and its northern boundary reached to today’s Lawrence Avenue East.
The original owner of the farm was Robert Jackson, born in Yorkshire, England, who came to Canada with his wife and four children in 1803. They have spent their first twelve years at the farm in a log cabin. As the family grew - the Jackson’s had 18 children! - father decided to build a solid brick house for his family. He made his own bricks and he also built a beautiful brick house with his own hands.
The farm was bought in 1948 by the Czech and Slovak organization that is known today as Masaryk Memorial Institute (MMI), and the Prague Restaurant was openned the next year. It has been in operation for over 60 years!
