Experience a guided tour of this early 19th century homestead once home to the Gage family. 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 retreated to their cellar as the Battle of Stoney Creek raged outside. The 100-foot-high Battlefield Monument stands as a symbol of peace and commemorates those soldiers who died on June 6, 1813. Nestled under the scenic Niagara Escarpment, this historic site encompasses 32 acres of parkland divided by Battlefield Creek.
Don't miss the Re-enactment of the Battle of Stoney Creek the first weekend of June - declared one of Ontario’s top 100 events by Festivals and Events Ontario! Learn more about the history of the site by visiting the Friends of Battlefield House website.
