Inside Hamilton’s Museums helps to satisfy a growing curiosity about Canada’s steel capital as it evolves into a post-industrial city and cultural destination. In this special excerpt we visit two sites, Griffin House and the Fieldcote Memorial Park and Museum. Griffin House honours one of Ancaster's earliest black settlers, Enerals Griffin, and pays tribute to the black slaves from the United States who fled to freedom in Upper Canada. Fieldcote Museum was built as private home and now functions as a gallery for exhibitions alternating between local history and the visual arts. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour of the historic homes and gardens, providing fascinating historical background and insight.
