English: This peninsula, headquarters of the Provincial Marine (c. 1790-1813), and of the Royal Navy (1813-1853), was the major British naval base on Lake Ontario during the War of 1812. Buildings surviving from this period include the Naval Hospital, the Guard House complex, and the Stone Frigate. On the southern part of the peninsula stands Fort Frederick, erected in 1812-13 but completely rebuilt in 1846. In 1875 the Point was chosen as the site of the Royal Military College of Canada which admitted its first class in June 1876.

French:
Cette péninsule, quartier général de la Provincial Marine (c. 1790-1813) et de la Marine royale (1813-1853), fut la principale base maritime des Britanniques sur le lac Ontario durant la Guerre de 1812-1814. De cette période, on retrouve l'hôpital naval, le corps de garde et la Stone Frigate. À l'extrémité sud de la péninsule s'élève le fort Frederick, construit entre 1812 et 1813 et entièrement reconstruit en 1846. En 1875 la pointe Frederick fut choisie pour héberger le Royal Military College of Canada qui ouvrit ses portes en juin 1876.
