Built in 1905 at 126 James Street South.  Prior to this building, the First Unitarian Church of Hamilton were located on this site from 1889 to 1905.  The Congregation is now located on Dundurn Street South and is celebrating their 125 anniversary.  In this photo, you can see the slope in the landscape that created the bog that once existed at James and Hunter prior to the 1840s.  Until this bog was drained around 1843 and the mountain access was created, John Street was the principle north-south road in early Hamilton.

Inspired by architecture and landscapes, my art explores our relationship to place, memory and identity. As a mid career artist, my art practice includes: painting, murals, short films, and sound art.

This is the official web site of the Save Century Manor Task Force 2 (CMTF2). This task force was created not only to draw attention to the existence of Century Manor, an important Hamilton heritage building in danger of demolition by neglect, but also to provide information on Century Manor and to gain support within and outside our community for our ongoing fight to save and preserve this heritage building through restoration and adaptive reuse.
