Name of creator
It is believed that in 1880 John E. Belcher built the house for William Hamilton, the developer of a machine shop which became one of Peterborough's largest and most important industries in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The house is solid brick, cream in colour, and has a two storey projecting bay with portico and entrance. The William Hamilton house is presently owned by the Roman Catholic Episcopal Corporation for the Diocese of Peterborough. A request for designation in accordance with the provisions of the Ontario Heritage Act, 1974, was filed 31 October 1985 by the Peterborough Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee.
The fonds was in the custody of Martha Ann Kidd, chair of the Peterborough Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee before it was donated to the Trent University Archives.
Scope and content

The fonds includes correspondence, legal and architectural description of the property and building, historical background, and photocopies of photographs of the house.
Immediate source of acquisition
The fonds was donated by Martha Ann Kidd in 1986.
