“Experience the sights and sounds of the fort under siege”

The year is 1812. You're far from home in the unknown wilds of Upper Canada. The place is Fort Erie, and war is in the air. All around you are the exciting sights and sounds of men preparing for battle. Step back into a time of red coats, black powder and gray fortress walls. Over 200 years of living history resides within, at Old Fort Erie. Experience the sights and sounds of the fort under siege at this War of 1812 National Historic Site. Choose your side: join British or American soldiers on a tour of the grounds and authentic buildings, and be sure to check out the musket demonstrations. Niagara Parks is preparing to celebrate the Bicentennial of the War of 1812. Plans are being made for special events beginning in 2012 - visit the official Visit 1812 website for updates on this important milestone shared by Canada and the United States of America - Celebrating 200 Years of Peace.

Almost everyone has been here on a field trip at some point while growing up in Buffalo. The tours are really awesome and informative, and the buildings are still in relatively great shape despite being over 200 years old. If you're an 1800's military junkie, this is a must see.
