Founders' Row

Founders' Row is the tree-lined road which curves up from Stuart Street to Theological Hall.

In 1881, 27 maples were planted along the road to commemorate the 26 founding trustees of Queen's, as well as Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald, who was active in several of the meetings that led to the foundation of the University.

Each sapling was said to have been planted by a representative or relative of each of the founders.

The original trees have long since died but the road is still lined with maples.
