Hinton Homestead


Ph: 210.435.jail(5245) or email @ historicoakvillejail@yahoo.com


The Hinton Homestead sits on the Town Square next to the Jailhouse.  It was built in the 1800's by a local founding family and donated for relocation to the Town Square and restoration in 2009. 


It's two front doors open up into the living area of the house and features an open floor concept including a livingroom, diningroom and fully equipped kitchen.  This is the smallest house on the square featuring one bedroom that used to be the sleeping porch in it's original form.   The outhouse made the move with the house and sits next to it in the yard.  It sleeps a maximum of two people.



You may recognize the Hinton name - it is the same founding family, descended from the same Sheriff Harry Hinton who was killed in the jail by inmates plotting to escape.  We are honoured and proud to have this exceptional example of a homestead dwelling in our collection on the Square from an exceptional Oakville family.



The homestead features a single bedroom (Queen) and bath.  The kitchens open to the living & dining areas.

Nightly rate is $ 115.00 + tax
