Hamilton is the capital of British Overseas Territory of Bermuda and the territory's financial centre, major port and tourist destination. In 2010 its population was 1,010 - one of the smallest of any capital city. Hamilton's history as a British city started in 1790 when the Government of Bermuda set aside 59 ha (145 acres) for its future seat, and in 1793 was officially incorporated by an Act of Parliament. The new city was named for Governor Henry Hamilton.
Nowadays, the city that overlooks Hamilton Harbour is predominately a business district, with office buildings, shops and few other structures. The City of Hamilton had long maintained the building height and view limit, stating that no buildings may obscure the Cathedral. In the 21st century, buildings have been designed (and some are under construction) as high as ten stories in this area. The local newspaper of Bermuda, The Royal Gazette, reported: "If you don't recognise the city, from 15 years ago, we don't blame you as it has changed so much".
