Why Save the Hermitage?

IMG_5240

While it may seem strange to ask you to save a building that is largely missing, it is this lack of completeness that gives the Hermitage its power over the imagination. Visitors are invited to fill in the gaps and insert themselves into this special place. Being located in the middle of a wooden valley only enhances this experience.

Largely unmarked and un-promoted, this site becomes a place of discovery. Whether you are a hiker who makes an accidental turn on the trail or a ghost hunter who is seeking new mysteries to the unknown, the Hermitage offers experiences that people warmly remember.

A quick search on Google or Youtube will show visitors from all over the world who have marvelled at the Hermitage.

The value of history is not rooted in the past, but in the present and future. As Hamilton continues to find success in the 21 century, let’s offer the world rich place to visit and live.

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.
