(1779 - 1852)

One of Ireland's best loved and renowned poets
and lyricists, Thomas Moore visited Niagara
during July 1804. Captivated by the scenic
splendour of the area and as guest of
Col. Isaac Brock, Commander at Fort George,
Moore frequently found rest and creative
inspiration under a large Oak tree here on
the McFarland farm.
His poems and other writings about Ontario
helped to give the Irish and British a better
picture of this region and subsequently,
played a role in encouraging emigration to
Canada.

"And I said, if there is peace to be found in the
world, a heart that is humble might find it here."
