Plaque Text

Built about 1856, at a time of rapid growth in Hamilton, Sandyford Place is a fine example of the housing then being erected for the merchants of the period. It is a rare survivor in Canada of the few row houses built for affluent citizens in the mid-nineteenth century. The exterior design of pleasing proportions features a pavilion plan that helps to break the uniformity of such a long façade. The competent handling of the stonework, ranging from the pick-faced dressing of the front wall to the Renaissance details of the window and door heads, suggests the work of Scottish masons in Ontario.
