AAA Editor Notes
Dundurn National Historic Site is at 610 York Blvd. The castle is the restored 40-room Italianate villa of Sir Allan Napier MacNab, premier of the United Provinces of Canada 1854-56. Dundurn, Gaelic for “strong fort,” houses furnishings that reflect the mid-19th-century lifestyle of the MacNab family and the servants who lived and worked in the house. Costumed interpreters offer 1-hour tours of more than 40 rooms on three floors. Also on the grounds is the Hamilton Military Museum.
