Set out for Niagara-on-the-Lake, a quaint 19th century town via motorcoach. Discover some of the rich history of Niagara-on-the-Lake and Queenston Heights through commentary given by our Group Leader. Next, we’ll go on an architectural walk around the town with a local historian to explore some of the historic buildings and hear about their roles in past wars, conflicts, rebellions, and threats that faced the city and the region during the course of its development. Focal points will include learning about the area from times of the First Nations peoples to the arrival of the Europeans and the War of 1812.
On Your Own.
