Historical Perceptions is the creation of Robin McKee.

Robin lives in Hamilton, Ontario, and has long been interested in his community's history. One of his particular areas of focus is Hamilton's cemeteries and the wealth of tradition and history which they represent. He regularly conducts public tours at the Hamilton Cemetery, 777 York Boulevard (across from Dundurn Castle). Each tour has a specific focus but Robin is always willing to answer questions and to share stories from his vast knowledge of the Hamilton Cemetery and the people who are buried there.

Robin McKee's "Stories in the Stones" cemetery tours commence from the entrance to the Hamilton Cemetery at 11 am and take place rain or shine. Be sure to bring the necessary food, drink and clothing needs. No reservations are required. There is no charge for the tours.




Robin has an interest in the many historic plaques that have been erected in the Hamilton community. As a new feature of this site, we have begun an expanding display of text and photos related to Hamilton's Historic Plaques.
