Exploring Glanbrook ~ One Neighbourhood at a time ~ Mount Hope

Just a few miles south of the City of Hamilton, you will find the town of Mount Hope. This town is a mixture of sprawling rural homesteads and urban residential communities, blending country life with city life. The majority of the homes in this area are single family dwellings. There is a combination of older homes built prior to 1960 as well as many newer homes in the area.

The Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum was founded in 1972 and its purpose is to acquire, document, preserve and maintain aircraft that were flown by Canadians from the beginning of the second World War up to the present. There are approximately 50 aircraft in the museum plus a collection of books, manuals, artifacts and other documents. One of the local favourite Canadian aircrafts is the Lancaster.

Eileen Vollick was Canada’s first licensed woman pilot and a plaque in her honor is proudly displayed outside the museum.

The Hamilton Public Library – Mount Hope Branch is located at 3027 Homestead Drive. The building was built in 1904 and its original purpose was to house the Glanford Township Council. It is a beautiful reminder of the early development of the community of Mount Hope and it’s citizens.

Behind the library, you will find the Mount Hope Park and Youth Centre. The park contains a public tennis court and a baseball diamond, along with a play structure, swings, and spring toys. Along the outskirts of the park, there is a paved walking trail to get your steps in – there are also various places to stop and add some strength training to your walks.
