Dundurn Castle, completed by 1835, is now a National Historic Site that illustrates the life and times of Sir Allan Napier MacNab (1798­1862). The Castle (so named by Hamilton citizens), with its gardens, grounds and many unusual outbuildings, was one of the finest estates in the province. Over forty rooms, above and below stairs, have been furnished to compare the life of a prominent Victorian family with that of their servants, in the 1850s. The kitchen has an open hearth and a large wood-burning cook stove, and a hand pump for water. Also below stairs, there are several other food preparation or food storage rooms and a hall where the servants ate. The public may enroll in historic cooking workshops.
