German Village Historic District


category : Other Attractions

In 1973, German Village was the first Historic District to be established in Hamilton.  In 1989, this district was listed on the National Register of Historical Places. German Village is fortunate to have many of Hamilton's most beautiful historic buildings proudly preserved within a nine-square block district starting at North Third and Dayton Streets in Hamilton. German Village was the first residential development outside of Fort Hamilton and was included in the original layout of the City of Hamilton.

Construction in the early 1800s was mostly frame and reflected several different periods of 19th century architecture: Queen Anne, Italianate, Eastlake, Gothic Revival and Greek Revival. The neighborhood housed both prominent businessmen and laborers, resulting in a number of significant and unusual buildings. By the 1840s and the completion of the nearby Hydraulic Canal, a wave of German immigrants had arrived and Hamilton was becoming a prominent industrial center. Lampposts, red brick sidewalks, and window boxes today provide nostalgic atmosphere for the current residential homes and businesses. 

Christmas Walk in the Village ... a Hamilton tradition for over 15 years ... celebrates the spirit of Christmas past and present in full Victorian splendor.  Many businesses, organizations and private residences open their doors to the public for this free event.
