ABOUT THE EVENT / PROMOTION
Gather your family together, take a break from holiday shopping and step back in time to walk the beautiful landscape of Battlefield Park, followed by a guided museum tour to experience an early 19th century home in wintertime with warmth, welcome and enticing aromas in the air. Closed Mondays, Christmas Day and Boxing Day.
Experience a guided tour of 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.
