This is the site of a famous War of 1812 battle, and you can take a walking tour of the battlefield. Picnic or play tennis in the shaded arbor before moving to the Laura Secord Homestead. This heroic woman threaded enemy lines to alert British authorities to a surprise attack by American soldiers during the War of 1812. Her home contains a fine collection of period furniture, plus artifacts recovered from an archaeological dig. History lessons come alive with the help of the costumed tour guides. Stop at the candy shop and ice-cream parlor for sweet treats.
