Fort George

Fort George

26 Queens Parade
Niagara-on-the-Lake ON


The scene of many battles during the War of 1812, Fort George was originally built by the British Army in the late 1700's. A new fort was completed in 1802 and this became the headquarters of the British Army and the local militia.

Captured by the U.S. Forces in 1813, the American Army used the fort as a base to invade Upper Canada (Southern Ontario). The fort was recaptured by the British Army in December 1813.

The fort was used by the Candian Army as a military training base during the First and Second World War, before being abandoned by the military in 1965.

Fort George is now a National Historic Site which is now maintained by Parks Canada. Open to visitors from April to October, come and experience the fort as it was during the early 19th century.

Most of the former military sites, such as Fort George, Navy Hall, and Butler's Barracks, have been restored. Fort George's restoration was done as a `Make Work Project`, guided by plans from the Royal Engineers, during the Great Depression of the 1930s, an early example of historic preservation. Fort George National Historic Site is a focal point in a collection of War of 1812 sites which, collectively, are managed by Parks Canada under the name Niagara National Historic Sites. That administrative name includes several national historic sites: Fort Mississauga, Mississauga Point Lighthouse (1804, the first on the Great Lakes), Navy Hall, Butler's Barracks, and Queenston Heights.
