This past weekend I had a chance to visit a few of the many great buildings that were open for Doors Open Hamilton 2012. The volunteers at the sites were welcoming and knowledgeable and did a wonderful job. They deserve a big thank you because this event couldn’t be held without them. The weather co-operated as well and definitely added to the experience.
I visited Auchmar with a friend and we had a great time planning how we would organize all of the rooms and grounds when we buy Auchmar for ourselves. A giant library, a ball pit and a petting zoo were some of our ideas. Anyone want to loan us a few million?
Auchmar is very well maintained and it’s neat to be able to take a look into the past when visiting. So much hard work went into building the estate and it shows in the details. Definitely not a bland and boring house like some newly built houses are.
Hamilton’s Port Authority was a great place to visit. The view from their boardroom is amazing and they had a really interesting time capsule with items from 1953. Plus they had cake in honour of their Centennial 🙂
Hopefully if you live in Hamilton or close by you had a chance to check out Doors Open Hamilton. If not then be sure to put it on your calendar for next year!
