Places of Worship Inventory Review
The Hamilton Municipal Heritage Committee’s Places of Worship Inventory Review project began in 2018. Led by the Inventory and Research Working Group (IRWG) of the HMHC, the project involves conducting updated surveys and preparing preliminary evaluations across the City of Hamilton working from the existing Places of Worship inventories, including:
- Inventory of Places of Worship - Listings of all known buildings used as places of worship built prior to 1967 throughout the former municipalities of Ancaster, Beverly, Binbrook, Dundas, East Flamborough, Glanford, Saltfleet, and West Flamborough
- Inventory of Places of Worship in Hamilton - An inventory of significant places of worship in the former municipality of Hamilton from 1801 to 2001
The goal of the project is to proactively screen the places of worship to identify candidates for listing on the Municipal Heritage Register and potential designation under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act, in accordance with the City’s Built Heritage Inventory Strategy. The IRWG has been reviewing the properties by community and ward (pre-2018 boundaries).
