About Hamilton 175

June 9, 2021 marks the 175th anniversary of Hamilton’s founding as a city. Beginning long before that official occasion, the land where Hamilton now stands has witnessed many stories. Whether about belonging and settlement, triumph and tragedy or human and industrial history, these memories are woven into the fabric of the city’s people and places. Hamilton 175 will explore these stories working in partnership with the 175 Advisory Group and Hamilton’s diverse communities.

This fall we're launching a digital storytelling platform interpreting Hamilton’s histories through heritage-based digital exhibits and inclusive new content co-created with external stakeholders and community groups. Download the PDF for more details on the Hamilton 175 project (PDF, 99 KB)
