Butler’s Barracks is a historic military complex comprised of five wooden buildings located at the edge of the Commons behind the Fort George National Historic Site in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Butler’s Barracks is of national historic significance because the four remaining 19th century military buildings are essential and integral elements in the complex of military structures at the mouth of the Niagara River; and because of their role in the military history of the area. In addition, the Indian Council House on the Common adjacent to Butler’s Barracks played an important role in consultations between the British Indian Department and their Indigenous allies. Butler’s Barracks was designated a national historic site in 1963.
