Experience a self-guided tour of Hamilton’s first Waterworks built in 1859, and pay tribute to the social and working life of the early industrial revolution.
The Pumphouse is a magnificent example of Italianate architecture, featuring massive stonework, detailed quoin blocks, Romaneqsue windows and a 150-foot chimney disguised as a Campanile bell tower. Inside, get up close with the two 70-ton steam engines – the oldest surviving Canadian-built engines of their kind.
For all ages.
