Brock's Monument and
Queenston Heights:

This striking commemoration and final resting place of Major General Brock marks the site of the Battle of Queenston Heights. Visitors can climb the 235 stairs to take in spectacular views, or set off on a self-guided tour which covers every major scene of the historic battle

Navy Hall

Navy Hall survives as the last building of what was once a large military complex and key supply depot for British forts on the Upper Great Lakes. Constructed in the 1760's the navy Hall complex has been home to Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe, the Provincial Marine, and a mess for the officers of Fort George. Open by appointment year-round.

Butler's Barracks

Just a ten minute walk from Fort George along the Otter Trail, this site has been more than 170 years of continuous military occupation. Begun as a British Army depot sited out of cannon range from the United States, the site became a Canadian Militia training camp. Many Canadians who fought in the Boer War, World War I, World War II and Korea, trained here. The grounds are open year-round. Visitor facilities will be available at this site in 1999.

Fort Mississauga

Built by the British toward the end of the 1812 conflict, this star-shaped fortification was intended to provide additional protection at the mouth of the Niagara River. It also counter balances Fort Niagara on the American shore opposite. While the remains of the fort have been stabilized to ensure its preservation, no visitor programmes or facilities are available at this time.
