Fort George National Historic Site

Site tour

1812-period costumed interpreters explain the strategic importance of Niagara’s “much defended border” and give a unique view into the social history of the soldiers, their families and the officers who protected the dangerous Niagara frontier over 200 years ago. Site tours include some geographical and historical context, a visit to the Soldiers’ Barracks, Officers’ Quarters, and our original Gunpowder Magazine. The tour includes a musket firing demonstration.
