Join us for a lively, informative tour of selected grave sites in historical Hamilton Cemetery. The Veterans Tour honours the men and women from Hamilton, who served from 1776 to the Korean War.

The Hamilton Cemetery is Canada’s first and oldest municipally owned and operated cemetery providing a lasting memorial, permanent tribute and a final resting place to many loved ones. Hamilton Cemetery houses some notable burials. Early settlers such as Robert Land and George Hamilton, victims of the Desjardins Railway Disaster and a large number of past Mayors of Hamilton rest here. Former Senators and American Civil War Veterans (War of 1812) can also be found buried in this historical cemetery.

Tours are free and hosted by volunteer guides.

Tours run rain or shine. Dress appropriately for weather conditions.
