• Battlefield House Museum & Park - National Historic Site

Visit 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.

While at Battlefield Park, be sure to visit their new public art project "The Eagles Among Us" by David M. General. The work is a series of four large granite figures that address the theme of healing and reconciliation using interpretations of the cultural traditions of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabek communities.

      In 1867, the year Canada was born, our Sara Calder turned 21. Sara is a descendant of the Gage family - the former owners of the property where the Battle of Stoney Creek was fought in 1813 - and was responsible for the formation of the Museum and for the building of Battlefield Monument. She was a great supporter of the Arts and was the founder of the Women’s Art Association. To jointly celebrate Canada’s and Sara’s birthdays, we welcome artists to bring their own art supplies and recreate the beautiful vistas found throughout Battlefield Park. The first 150 registered participants will receive an official “Canada 150” logo pin to mark their achievement and contribution to Canada’s celebration. Cookies and lemonade will be provided to registrants. This is an outdoor event. Registration begins at 9:30am at the Park.
