Town Hall Building

The Chippawa Town Hall is located at the intersection of Main Street and Cummington Square in the former village of Chippawa. It is a fine example of simplified Greek Revival storefront architecture. The Chippawa Town Hall is easily recognized by its large plate glass windows and rooftop clock tower.

The Chippawa Town Hall was built in the old town square, which was situated amongst many of the businesses in Chippawa. Chippawa later became a part of Niagara Falls.

There is a beautiful bandstand across the street where weekly concerts often take place during the summer.

Chippawa Battlefield Park

The Battle of Chippawa fought on July 5th, 1814, was the opening engagement of the Niagara campaign of 1814, the longest and bloodiest military operation of the War of 1812.

Laura Secord’s Home

Recommended by JENNY JENKINS

Laura Secord (née Ingersoll) was a heroine of the War of 1812. She is known for having walked 20 miles out of American-occupied territory in 1813 to warn British forces of an impending American attack. The story of her trek has become legendary, and Secord herself mythologized in Canadian history.

Laura moved from Queenston to Chippawa in 1835 when her husband James became a customs collector at the port of Chippawa. After his death, she bought a cottage on Water Street in 1841, where she lived with her daughters for the rest of her life.

Water Street has since been renamed Bridgewater Street.

Willoughby Historical Museum

Museum provides multiple displays to explain the intricacies and experiences of different peoples at this battle and throughout the War of 1812.

Whereas the Ferry Street site is grandiose and impressive, the humble one-room schoolhouse provides the perfect setting in which to experience the charm of early life in the area known as Willoughby.

Being a former schoolhouse (Located in the former School Section #2), visitors can admire former report cards and photographs while seeing the markings on the floor where the desks were bolted down. Early life is shown through farming tools and family heirlooms.

Betty’s Restaurant

Recommended by EDNA SLOGGETT

The original Betty’s Restaurant was owned by Ted and Betty Sobansky. It was purchased by the Miszk family in 1967.

Betty’s became famous for its fish & chips and Trudy’s homemade pies but was also known for its friendly, family service. The original restaurant had just 21 seats and with Trudy in the kitchen and Papa Joe out front, the reputation of Niagara’s finest home cooking quickly spread.

Abby’s Breakfast & Lunch

Abby’s is tucked away just 8 minutes from the tourist trap area of Niagara Falls. If you are a fan of large buffet AYCE chain restaurant breakfasts, do NOT come here!

However, if you would like an ice home-cooked breakfast in a cute diner with friendly servers then this is the spot. Sandy the owner is a sweet lady from Port aux Basques Newfoundland, and her warm hospitality and friendly disposition are 100% genuine.
