Fort George was the headquarters of the Centre Division of the British Army during the War of 1812. It played a key role in the defence of Upper Canada.
Visitors to Fort George National Historic Site can step back in time to experience the early military history of Niagara. Tour through 19th-century military architecture including the Blockhouses, Officers’ Quarters, Artificers Shop and Guard House. Make sure to visit the powder magazine, which is the only building to have survived the Battle of Fort George and is the oldest military building in Ontario today!
Throughout the summer, experience the sounds of the Fife and Drum Corps, witness the training manoeuvres of the 41st Regiment Infantry unit, taste food prepared over an open fire in the Officer’s Kitchen, and witness musket and artillery demonstrations.
