350 Niagara Parkway, Fort Erie Ontario L2A 3S3
The fort was originally built in 1764, but destroyed by a storm in 1803. The War of 1812 broke out during its rebuilding and was captured by the Americans, who later abandoned it. Restored in 1939, the impressive structure boasts a dry ditch, drawbridge, bastions, and guns typical of that era. Relics from the War of 1812 are on display. Guided tours are available, and battle re-enactments take place in August.
