Auchmar Manor House

The Auchmar Manor House is a significant cultural landscape. This manor house, the last surviving country estate on Hamilton Mountain, was built for the Honourable Isaac Buchanan – Scotsman, entrepreneur, civic leader, politician and legendary Canadian public figure. Enjoy this rare opportunity to view the main floor of this Gothic revival house and the walled and landscaped grounds that surround it.

Auchmar was originally home to the honourable Isaac Buchanan (a local businessman and politician). Throughout the years, Auchmar has also been home to the Young family (local entrepreneurs), the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Hungarian Sisters of Social Service. During Digital Doors Open, discover the history of the house and listen to a short lecture on the past, present and future of the property. View a photo tour of Auchmar below. And explore virtual tours and stories of the house and its past inhabitants on their Instagram page. Check their Instagram page daily for new photos and stories!
