Fort York National Historic Site information
Established by the British in 1793 to defend the then town of York, Fort York was almost entirely destroyed during the War of 1812 when a small band of Ojibwe warriors and British troops were unable to defeat their US attackers. A handful of the original log, stone and brick buildings have been restored. From May to September, men decked out in 19th-century British military uniforms carry out marches and drills, firing musket volleys into the sky.
The fort is open year-round; check the homepage for special events and tour details.
