In this episode of “Gallivanting” Chris De La Rosa of CaribbeanPot.com will take you on a visit to Dundurn Castle in his hometown Hamilton Ontario, where you’ll explore it’s 1850’s historic garden. Hamilton Ontario is home to the soccer event’s of the 2015 PanAm gmes, so if you’re planning a visit, you must check out Dundurn Castle.

We’ll explore the grounds of the castle as well as the 1850’s historic garden which is a replica of the original garden William Reid the gardener to Allan MacNab for 25 years managed, as the kitchen garden for the estate. With heirloom plants, 1850’s tools and even the way the garden itself is divided into growing sections.

Dundurn Castle is a 40-room Italianate-style villa built in the 1830’s on Burlington Heights; the former site of a fortified military encampment established by the British in 1813. Once home to Sir Allan Napier MacNab, railway magnate, lawyer and Premier of the United Canadas (1854-1856) and his family, today Dundurn Castle tells the story of the family who lived above stairs and the servants who lived and worked below stairs to support their affluent lifestyle. Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall is the museum’s Patron and the great, great, great granddaughter of Sir Allan MacNab.
