Temporary officers' quarters - North storehouse / Le logement temporaire des officiers - L'entrepôt

English:
These masonry features are the remains of the north blockhouse built by the British army during the American Revolution (1775-1783). Erected to protect the canal, this building was also used as a barracks and as a storehouse for food and munitions. It was destroyed sometime after 1779, then rebuilt during the War of 1812. The new blockhouse had the same trapezoidal shape as the old one but was oriented in a different direction. Plans from the 1850s no longer show a blockhouse in this position.
Temporary officers' quarters - North storehouse
These masonry features are the remains of the north storehouse built by the British army during the American Revolution (1775-1783). Goods in transit to Upper Canada were stored in this building. It was erected adjacent to the canal to facilitate the loading of vessels. During the War of 1812, it was used as the engineers' store and a temporary officiers' quarters. During the 1830s, it was replaced with a smaller building that was used as the commissariat store. The storehouse was sold in 1872.
