Tisdale House is the oldest home in Ancaster. In the 1820s, the building was occupied by “Charcoal Burner” John O’Neil, and housed two charcoal kilns. Later, the house became an undertaker’s parlour run by George Moore. The house has been fully retrofitted and is now home to the Ancaster Community Policing Centre and the Hamilton Police Museum.
