The Battle of Chippawa (July 5, 1814) was the longest and bloodiest military operation of the War of 1812. It was an American victory over British forces. Niagara Parks acquired the site of the Battle of Chippawa in 1995 and has preserved 121 hectares (300 acres) of this pristine battlefield.

The annual memorial ceremony in July honours all those who served during the Battle of Chippawa

Name Origin

The area was abandoned by the Iroquois and settled by a branch of the Chippewa nation, originating the name of river and village. The name is sometimes spelled as Chippewa, Chippeway, or Chemonda. Prior to 1829 the river flowed into the Niagara River. But when the first Welland Canal was built in the late 1820’s, the flow of water was reversed by dredging from the Niagara River into the Chippawa

Every town is proud of notable citizens. We are proud to share their stories

The Small Town in Me: CHIPPAWA

Share Your Thoughts | Impressions | Memories

The project will start soon

There is a small town in each and everyone of us. Even if we have never lived in a small town, or traveled through one, we have been touched by the memories, experience and humour of a friend or a relative who has grown up in such a community. Many of our own ancestors came to our country from small towns across the globe. <...>
