DUNDAS ONTARIO, INFORAMTION

 

Dundas once was known as an independent town, but now is a beautiful community of Hamilton.  Prior to being named Dundas it was called Coote’s Paradise but changed in 1814.  Dundas is nicknamed the Valley Town because of its topographical location at the bottom of Niagara Escarpment.  Dundas has a average population of twenty thousand, and has been for many years.

 

In the late 18th and 19th century Dundas was an important town in Upper Canada, but even after that numerous cities in Ontario retain streets called Dundas.

In 1930s McMaster was established in the nearby west Hamilton, Dundas gradually became a bedroom community of the university faculty and students. Dundas and its surrounding areas are filled with endless parks, hiking trails, and beautiful recreation areas.

 

Since Dundas has such a 19th century downtown architecture many films have been shot in Dundas, such as, Haven, Cabin Fever, Wrong Turn and many others.  December 2005, Man of the Year, starring Robin Williams was a major film that was completed in Dundas.

DeLuxe Restaurant had exterior and the inside of the restaurant in the movie, The Incredible Hulk.  Other scenes were filmed in nearby Hamilton areas, in September 2007.
