Fort Malden



National Historic Site

The Fort Malden National Historic Site preserves what is remaining of the second British fort built here in Amherstburg.

Fort Amherstburg was established there, near the Detroit River in 1796. This fort was the headquarters for the Right Division of the British Army in Upper Canada during the War of 1812. The British then destroyed this fort when they were forced to return home in September 1813.

The Fort offers Musket demonstrations. Watch the flash and hear to blast of a Brown Bess musket like the ones that were used in the Rebellions of 1837-1838.


The site also has two red chairs that Parks Canada has placed at scenic locations across Canada. Red chairs offer a place to slow down, to relax and to truly discover the best that Parks Canada has to offer.
