Whitehern Historic House and Garden
Inside Hamiltonâ€™s Museums helps to satisfy a growing curiosity about Canadaâ€™s steel capital as it evolves into a post-industrial city and cultural destination. In this special excerpt we visit Whitehern historic home and garden, which comes with three generations' worth of family possessions â€” everything from antique furniture to paintings, photographs, diaries, letters, and old toys. John Goddard takes us on a detailed tour of the historic home, providing fascinating historical background and insight into the McQuesten family secrets.
