Auchmar Manor House

The Auchmar Estate is considered to be the last surviving country estate on Hamilton Mountain. It was built for the Honourable Isaac Buchanan, a local Scotsman, entrepreneur, politician and civic leader in 19th-century Canada. Visit this Gothic revival manor house and learn about its storied past before strolling the walled and landscaped grounds that surround it. No parking on site.

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.
