A key defensive post during the War of 1812 and the Rebellion of 1837-38, Fort Malden commemorates a period when the destiny of Canada was determined by military action.
For 200 years, fortifications at Fort Malden have witnessed and participated in the struggles which helped forge a new nation out of the North American wilderness. An army garrison, British Indian Department post, dockyard for the Upper Great Lakes and the meeting place for Chief Tecumseh and British General Brock - the fort has been all these.
Today the 4.5 hectare site includes remains of the 1840-period earthworks and four buildings, including a restored and furnished 1819 brick barracks. Fort Malden offers a wide range of curriculum based education programmes for most ages
