The British Army and Canadian militia troops built these historical military fortifications in the late 18th and early 19th century to defend themselves against a potential attack from the young nation of USA. Most of the buildings here today are mud and brick reconstructions of early wooden structures. Twice, in 1812 and 1814, the site saw military conflict between the two parties. This is the country’s largest collection of original War of 1812 period buildings. Depending on the season the attraction puts on reenactments and demonstrations that are always fun to watch. The main exhibits cover soldier lives, barracks, kitchens, archaeology, lakes, the gates and the battery.
