Whitehern

Attractions

Museums & Galleries

Before it was a popular Hamilton tourist attraction, Whitehern was home to Ontario politician Thomas McQuesten. The late-Classical structure was built around 1850 and named a National Historic Site of Canada in 1962 for its displays of Georgian, Edwardian, and Victorian era artifacts. Whitehern is open to the public, and guided tours of the property are conducted regularly. For an outing that as historical as it is charming, come check it out.
