City of Hamilton Issues Notice of Intent to Designate Four Heritage Properties

The City of Hamilton is moving to designate four properties under the Ontario Heritage Act, publishing notices last week as required under the Act. The following are the notices on the City website:

140 Locke Street South, Hamilton - "The former church at 140 Locke Street South was constructed in the late 19th century and was originally relocated from its former location on Canada Street in 1895-1896. The church was associated with the theme of late 19th and early 20th century places of worship in Hamilton. The former church served as the Immanuel Congregational Church from 1890 to 1925, then became Trinity United Church from 1925 to 1967, and was later converted into an auction hall in 1967. The former church has design value as it demonstrates the influence of Neo Gothic style of architecture.
