Dundurn National Historic Site and its collection

Dundurn National Historic Site

Dundurn Castle is a historic neoclassical mansion on York Boulevard in Hamilton , Ontario , Canada. The 1,700-square-metre (18,000 sq ft) house took three years and $175,000 to build, and was completed in 1835. The forty room castle featured the latest conveniences of gas lighting and running water. It is currently owned by the City of Hamilton , which purchased it in 1899 or 1900 for $50,000. The City has spent nearly $3 million renovating the site to make it open to the public. The rooms have been restored to the year 1855 when its owner Sir Allan Napier MacNab, 1st Baronet , was at the height of his career. Costumed interpreters guide visitors through the home, illustrating daily life from the 1850s. The Queen consort , a descendant of Sir Allan MacNab, is the Royal Patron of Dundurn Castle.
