Canada’s history isn’t just about storied battles and game-changing inventions. The tales that remind us of the day-to-day lives of the families who bravely made their way in a new land are every bit as significant. Whether it’s the family of farmers who relentlessly worked their patch of land to provide, the teacher who ruled her one-room school, the early Black settlers who escaped to freedom, or the wealthy industrialists who shaped the economies of their communities, the stories of Hamilton Halton Brant’s founding families live on through our region’s beautifully preserved historic sites.
