Griffin House

Celebrate Hamilton's rich history and explore its architectural gems and undiscovered treasures. The Griffin House is recognized as an important Canadian Black History site. It is included among several sites in the Central Ontario Network for Black History and stands as a testament to the bravery and determination of black men and women who journeyed to freedom in Southern Ontario. The museum is also an excellent example of Ancaster's early history, preserved in a simple 1.5-storey house just west of the Hermitage Ruins. Parking at Hermitage Parking lot.
