Hermitage Saved?

The Hermitage

The Hermitage

Success!  Last night, Hamilton City Council approved the motion that outline how the Hermitage will be saved.

Money previously allocated by the City for it’s partial demolition will now be used for it’s partial restoration.  The Council will also agreed to provide another $200,000 for the work. The finally $200,000 must come from the community.  Councillor Lloyd Ferguson has indicated that he has been able to raise $100,000 to date.

So, this leaves the community with the challenge of finding another $100,000.  A very tall order if you are planning bake sales.

Another concern is the restoration work.  Is the goal to keep the heritage value of the property or create something that no-longer exists.

The next 3-8 months will be interesting.

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.
