The Haldimand Tower

The Haldimand Tower

At the end of these promenades, one finds the Tour Haldimand. This structure, built in about 1825, was the result of a whimsical competition between three notables of the period, one of whom was William Haldimand, then owner of the Denantou estate. The goal of the competition was to build the most beautiful ruined medieval tower. This structure, which then stood almost in the water, won the first prize.
