Hamilton Sketches – Holmstead

Peter Hamilton, related to George Hamilton, built a log cabin on the lands that would eventually become the Durand neighbourhood.  In the 1830s, he replaced his cabin with a large brick house. The house was later sold and called Holmstead.  The home was demolished in the 1930s.
