City Hall

Heart of the City: The history of Hamilton as a British city began in 1790 when the Bermuda Government set aside 145 acres for it, and was officially incorporated in 1793 by an Act of Parliament. Bermuda’s capital relocated to Hamilton from St. George's in 1815 and formally became a city in 1897, ahead of the consecration in 1911 of the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity which was under construction at the time.
