Heritage Properties Map

The City of Hamilton’s Built Heritage Inventory is a compilation of over 30 years of data on properties identified as having cultural heritage value or interest. Properties have been added to the Inventory as a result of survey work conducted by volunteers and Heritage Committee members, as part of project work conducted by the City and through the development application process.

There are over 6,000 addresses listed on the Inventory across the City. To view the active Inventory listings, visit the City’s Heritage Properties map.

Waterdown Village Built Heritage Inventory

The Waterdown Inventory is an initiative to update the City of Hamilton’s database of information on heritage buildings in the village. The goal is to evaluate each property to determine if it has cultural heritage value or interest that should be recognized by adding it to the Municipal Heritage Register or further evaluated for potential designation under the Ontario Heritage Act.
