HistoricalHamilton.com is brought to you by Paul Dolanjski and Brian Kowalewicz.


Paul and Brian are both Hamilton area natives with a love of local history, architecture and internet technology.


HistoricalHamilton.com was started by Paul in 2006. The first version of the site was a basic showcase of Paul's photographs of local historical buildings.


By late 2007 Paul decided to work with fellow local history fan Brian Kowalewicz to create a new version of the site that would act as a public database of local history and photography.


Please note, we are not professional historians, so we do not make any guarantees as to the accuracy of the information presented on this site. We are doing this as a hobby. Please bear with us as we learn about our history. We are basically documenting our explorations and reading on this site as we go along.


If you have any questions, concerns, comments or suggestions about the website please email us at info@historicalhamilton.com


Unfortunately we usually aren't much help with general history questions, so here's a list of resources that will be much more helpful than us:
