History of Battlefield House & Park

The Battlefield House (Gage Homestead), built in 1796, captures the way of life during the early 19th century. The Gages worked the land with their ten children and became a strong voice in the hamlet of Stoney Creek. During the War of 1812, the family fled to the cellar as the Battle of Stoney Creek raged outside. The British victory at the Battle of Stoney Creek was crucial in preventing the Americans from seizing Upper Canada. The Battlefield Monument stands as a symbol of peace and commemorates those soldiers who died on June 6, 1813.

Nestled under the Niagara Escarpment, this historic site is located on 32 acres of park land linked to the Bruce Trail, Canada's oldest and longest footpath. Learn more about the history of the site, including Gage House, Nash-Jackson House and the Battlefield Monument by visiting the Friends of Battlefield House website.
