Central is bounded by Queen Street to the west, the CN Rail line to the north, James Street North to the east and Main Street to the South.

This area now contains Jackson Square, a few modern office towers and hotels, the Art Gallery of Hamilton and Hess Village.

Central has gone through many changes over Hamilton's history. The area now occupied by Jackson Square and the Hamilton City Centre once contained a bustling open-air farmers market, and was the site of a few of our early town and city hall buildings. These important locations were demolished in the 1960s in an effort to revitalize the downtown core.
