Experience a guided tour of this National Historic Site nestled under the Niagara Escarpment comprised of two historic homes, a 100-foot-high Monument, an Indigenous art installation, and 32 acres of parkland divided by a meandering creek.

Since 1796, the Gage family lived in what is now referred to as ‘Battlefield House’ and became a strong voice in the hamlet of Stoney Creek. The family house was a community hub for farmers, itinerant preachers and Indigenous peoples who came to meet and trade at James Gage’s store.


Considered a turning point in the War of 1812, the Battle of Stoney Creek raged all around the Gage family homestead. The 100-foot-high Battlefield Monument stands as a symbol of peace and commemorates those soldiers who died on June 6, 1813. The Eagles Among Us sculpture created by Indigenous artist David General is dedicated to peace and reconciliation after the war.

Grandview (Nash-Jackson House) is a two-storey Georgian-style dwelling completed in 1880 and relocated to Battlefield Park in 1999. It is the starting point of a visit to the site and houses a gift shop, exhibit gallery, and unique public rental space.
