Protect & Preserve Century Manor


  • Demolition of Century Manor is Disrespectful of the Environment.

  • Demolition of Century Manor is Disrespectful of the people who may have been treated unjustly.

  • Demolition of Century Manor is Disrespectful of our Cultural Identity.


    Hamiltonians and other heritage advocates in other cities have organized and formed groups to rally in defense of Century Manor and ask to have the Manor repurposed in a way that honours its history and continues to serve the community.

The Friends of Century Manor was incorporated in 2020 in response to the impending threat of demolition from a Ministerial Rezoning Order to remove the 1876 heritage building and use the site for a housing development. Our mandate is to protect, preserve and restore Century Manor for adaptive reuse by overturning this provincial order and possibly reinstating the previous proposal for the incorporation of Century Manor as a Mohawk College student facility. Century Manor was designated by the City in 1997 a significant heritage resource as the last remaining structure of the Hamilton Asylum complex on the Mountain Brow. This designation is meant to protect the site from alteration or demolition.
