A Gorgeous Memorial to a Difficult Time for North America

Located in Niagara-on-the-Lake facing both the shores of Lake Ontario and the banks of the Niagara River, Fort George is the site of a number of key battles during the War of 1812. This historic Fort offers a look back into one of the most trying times the United States and Canada endured in their early days as nations.

While inside of Fort George, visitors can explore eight restored buildings while the sound of military music performed by the 41st Fife and Drum Corps fills the air. Kids and adults alike will get a kick out of live musket demonstrations. Redcoat-clad soldiers will show you how to load and fire historically-accurate replica weapons. But the real kick will come when one of the redcoats hands you a Brown Bess musket of your own, allowing you to pull the trigger and fire a round off.

Throughout the grounds, historical interpreters in period dress regale visitors with historically accurate war stories – sidle up to one and learn a thing or two about the lives of British soldiers and their families. Although perhaps reluctantly, they'll even tell you about the day the fort fell to the Americans.
