Hamilton Ontario

INTRODUCTION
Hamilton is the ninth largest city in Canada and the third in Ontario. The city covers a total land area spanning 1,117.23 square kilometers. As of 2010, Hamilton has a total population of 519,949. Over 25 per cent of the city’s population is comprised of immigrants.  The largest ethnic groups include Italian, and Polish.
Interestingly, this city earned its reputation as Canada’s largest steel producer. However, this should not come as a surprise since the Toronto-Hamilton region is considered Canada’s most industrialized section. Hamilton itself has been a port city since the British dominated Canada in the late 17th Century. To some extent, Hamilton often carried the nickname “The Working Man’s City”. It has a number of sophisticated labor unions.

BRIEF HISTORY
The colonial history of Hamilton is closely tied up with the history of the nearby cities of Mississauga and Toronto. However, Hamilton is also the sight of the bloodiest conflicts with its indigenous inhabitants. Around 1784, over 10,000 British loyalists from America migrated to Ontario as a consequence of the American Revolution. Representatives of the British Crown signed two consecutive treaties with the indigenous peoples – a set of historic events known as the First and Second Purchase.

Hamilton was an important settlement during the War of 1812 – an offshoot conflict between the British and Americans in the years following the American Revolution. George Hamilton, the son of a politician and renowned War of 1812 veteran named Robert Hamilton, bought a house and 257 acres of land in a small village once known as Head of the Snake. This settlement was later known as Hamilton, a namesake of its prominent prospector and developer. This town became an administrative seat of the newly created Gore District.

Between 1850 and 1878, Hamilton progressed into a highly industrialized region. This city not only established the first telephone service in the country, it also became a pioneer of the first telephone exchange in the British Empire as well as in all of North America. Since the building of railroads in the 1900’s, Hamilton became an epicenter for industrial expansion in Ontario. Procter & Gamble and Beech Nut Packing Company were the first two manufacturing plants built in Hamilton, respectively in 1914 and 1922.

HISTORICAL LANDMARKS
One of the most iconic sites in the city of Hamilton is the Dundurn Castle. This regency house was first built in 1832 and completed in 1835 after it was bought by Sir Allan Napier MacNab (18th Century Canadian Prime Minister). Within this historic compound lies the Hamilton Military Museum, a huge gallery that features relics from the War of 1812 up to the World War II.

Another famous historic site is the Hamilton Farmer’s Market, which was originally founded in 1837. It is located in downtown Hamilton. It underwent a series of renovations which was completed in year 2011. The oldest historic site in Hamilton is the Griffin House. This manor was completed in 1827 and it is closely associated with Canada’s historical opposition to African American slavery at the time.   

 

TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
One of the most popular tourist attractions in Hamilton is the HMSC Haida National Historic Site. The renowned HMSC Haida once served as a Canadian naval destroyer in World War II. This harbor is one of the proud reminders of Canada’s participation in the last worldwide conflict. It also pays homage to the brave heroes that helped liberate Europe from the Nazis.

Outside the industrial mood of the city, you will find the “Waterfalls of Hamilton”. This tourist attraction draws tourists and adventurers who wish to withdraw from the noise and hassle of city life. Tourists to Hamilton often visit the majesty of the Cathedral Basilica of Christ King. This church borrows structural elements from medieval Gothic style but also adds its own post-modern accouterments.

THINGS TO DO IN THE CITY
Hamilton is an ideal place for tourists who wish to have a relaxing vacation. For this reason, the city’s famous Bayfront Park has attracted many visitors far and wide. This site is located at Hamilton Harbour and is proven to be the most popular of all 35 renowned nature parks.

Apart from outdoor attractions, Hamilton is also a perfect place to explore Canada’s World War II history. This city is home to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum. People who are seeking indoor excitement often wind up at The Crux Escape Room Inc:  gaming lounge and seminar venue. Aside from the Hamilton Farmer’s Market, one of the best shopping venues for tourists is The Great Canadian Gift Company. In terms of arts and culture, two of the best places to visit in Hamilton include Theatre Aquarius and Pearl Company Arts Centre.
