On the west side of Howland Avenue just north of Barton Avenue can be seen this 2014 Heritage Toronto plaque attached to the front of See House at the north edge. Here's what it says:

The official residence the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese (or "See") of Toronto from 1885 until 1935, this house became the administrative centre of Royal St. George's College in 1964.
