Nancy Island Historic Site

view of island

07

Nancy Island has served as a historic site since 1928 and is the most viable site to the War of 1812 in Simcoe County and the Georgian Bay region.

It represents a major event during the War of 1812: HMS Nancy’s battle against three American schooners on August 14th of 1814.

The island houses the charred hull and artifacts of the HMS Nancy from this pivotal moment in Canadian history. The borders of Canada today are a direct result of the valiant struggles of Nancy and her crew!

Visitors to the site can join a heritage costumed staff member and discover the history of Nancy and her crew, participate in a hands-on historical demonstration, view an award-winning video presentation that tells the crew’s heroic story, and club to the top of a Great Lakes 19th Century replica lighthouse for the best view of Wasaga Beach.
