The Customs House - 51 Stuart Street.

Today I checked out the creepy old Customs House. This place has a long history in Hamilton, mostly a history of being haunted. I desperatley wanted to go in and take a gander, but all tours have to be pre-arranged. I had to settle for being a creep and taking photos from the street, and other than the Customs House, Stuart Street is pretty run down.

Haunted Hamilton has done a few stories on the Customs house, so has the tv show Creepy Canada, the stories about the 'dark lady' that haunts it, are terrifying. I'd like to go in..maybe one day...

Stuart Street

Customs House, fantastic Architecture

New Sign

A covered up Door.

It shocks me how old this building is..

Stay Classy Hamilton.

There wasn't much else going on on Stuart St. Mostly run down factories and construction yards. I think the old Lakeport Brewery building is somewhere in that area too. The Customs House is a powerful building, I urge everyone to check it out. You can park at Bayfront park and walk there in under 2 minutes.
