Whitehern Museum

A National Historic Site, Whitehern Historic House and Garden is the former estate of the prominent McQuesten family of Hamilton, Ontario. Built in 1848, this National Historic Site is a strong example of an urban estate. Home to three generations of the McQuesten family the estate embodies a unique mixture of Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian influences, with a significant garden designed by Dunington Grubb.

ERA’s work at Whitehern included the restoration of the building’s classic front portico, the conversion of the stable building into a visitor centre, and the development of a conservation plan for the estate’s roof and widow’s walk.
