In the next week or so, the re-building of the Hermitage Ruins will begin. My understanding is that the process will start with the numbering of all the stone in the main structure. I have not heard yet whether they are going to save the remains of the outer buildings or not.
Last year, I had the good fortune to have the founder of Ghost Walks to show me the ruins. He told me the tale of Lover’s Lane and the Hermitage Ruins. A few weeks later, I went on the actual tour – at night. It was an amazing experience, and I strongly recommend the experience to everyone.
For those of you who missed the original posting, here is a repeat of the Legend of Lover’s Lane.
This is part 8 and the final installment of the unfinished Hermitage Ruins doc. Last year, as it appeared that the Hermitage would be partial demolished, a group of activists held a gathering at the Hermitage. Their goal, to save the Hermitage.
This short and unfinished film follows some of the lead organizers as they explore the ruins and try to understand the location of the various buildings on the site.
It was a wonderful day of exploration, and really captured the power of the Hermitage over the imagination of those who visit the site.
For the next 4-5 weeks, I will be busy with family commitments; so here are some raw footage of past film projects. This week, part 2 of the never completed film project on the saving of the Hermitage Ruins that are located in Ancaster, Ontario.
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.
