Tour the historic sites of Fort Erie and Buffalo
The Niagara region was a frontline for the War of 1812 in Upper Canada, and the Fort Erie and Buffalo areas are rich in historic war sites. This includes Old Fort Erie, the site of the bloodiest battlefield on Canadian soil.
The Fort Erie Museum & Cultural Heritage Committee (MCHC) along with the 1812 Bicentennial Committee have designed a self guided tour of the significant War of 1812 sites in Fort Erie and Buffalo. A brochure is available that includes a detailed map of all of the key locations along with a description that explains the history of that site. The map is also available on the resources page of the FortErie1812.ca website.
This self-guided tour allows visitors and residents the opportunity to travel at their own pace and stand on the very ground where battles were fought only 200 years ago. Take part in this tour to learn more about our history and heritage, and see the significant role that Fort Erie played in the War of 1812.
