Unfortunately, we planned out visit for a Monday, only to find all museums in Hamilton are closed that day. As we wandered around the grounds on a chilly day, one of the custodians noticed us and invited us inside the museum to get warm. He and another tour guide or docent spent some time with us, giving an account of the time period of the War of 1812 and allowing us to see an introductory orientation film. After, we did take some time to tour the grounds and see the impressive Battlefield Monument, a local landmark, Since 1913, the tower that stands 100 feet tall commemorates a century of peace between the British and the Americans. The grounds make up 32 acres of parkland, an herb garden and nature trails, including Battlefield House and the Grandview (Nash-Jackson House) where we were allowed in. A number of smaller memorials tell the story of the Battle of Stoney Creek. Quite an experience, we were very thankful of the kindness shown by the museum staff and will make it a stop the next time we are in the area
I joined the house tour. It was nice. It was a small house but great. The tour guide, Luke, also nice. In winter, the stairs to go up to the monument is closed. I'll come again when it's warmer.
Grew up here, only great memories and always well kept and respected grounds
There is a lot of neat history here!
In 1813 3,000 US troops tried to invade Upper Canada and set-up camp. In return, 700 British Regulars left their encampment in Burlington Heights to attack the enemy. While both sides suffered great losses, the Americans were ultimately defeated and withdrew. This particular battle is credited with saving Upper Canada from being overrun in 1813.
Located within the park is the Battlefield House, The Battlefield Monument, The Nash-Jackson House, as well as the Battlefield Cemetery.
The grounds are surrounded by beautiful gardens and plenty of green space.
Annually, a reenactment of the battle takes place nearby - which is a draw for both tourists and locals.
Perfect for summer evening strolls, picnics and even photography.
This is a great and important part of Hamilton & Canada's history and a site not to be missed.
It is well worth the time to go early in June to watch the re enactment of the Battle of Stoney Creek. Volunteers in period costume great to see...and little centres with games for kids and crafts and even clothing from back then. There is an outlet for hotdogs or sausages or hamburgers and fries. Touring the homestead is very interesting as well.
