  • Views Hamilton's heritage museums for the first time as a single community — linked by events, personalities, and function. 
  • Nothing similar exists in print or digital form. Even individual biographies are mostly out print, and few pertinent histories exist. 
  • Personal stories reveal the museums in fresh ways.
  • The author wrote a Toronto Star feature series about Ontario's under-recognized cultural gems, including several of its historic homes and museums. As a heritage enthusiast and journalist, the author knows how to ask original questions and focus on often-overlooked details. 
  • This book is meant to inspire readers to visit the sites, and help ensure their long-term viability.
  • Follow-up to Inside the Museums, which focused on Toronto's heritage sites.
