Here are our favourite historic sites in the beautiful city of Hamilton, ON. Believe us, and you won’t be sorry you did.
Battle of Stoney Creek – This historic site is that of the British victory, which was a critical turning point during the war of 1812. It was this battle that allowed further positioning for the American fighting forces.
Dundurn Castle – We already mentioned this one an on our things to do in Hamilton, ON page. But it’s so beautiful we had to touch on it again. This mansion is a picturesque-style home which was built by Sir Allan Napier MacNab.
Griffin House – Originally owned by Enerals Griffin, a Black immigrant from the state of Virginia, USA. Enerals moved here in 1834, and his four-room house is typical of the 19th century upper Canada homes.
Sandyford Place – A historic row of Stoney terrace homes. Completed in 1856 using a style similar to that of Scottish settlers who wanted to recreate the looks of their Scottish townhomes, similar to those homes built in the mid 119th century by merchants.
St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church – Formerly St. Andrews’s Church this is a small church that follows a Gothic Revival style but is an absolute gem to see.
