Fort Malden National Historic Site

Visitors to Fort Malden can step back in time and get a glimpse of what military life was like in a British Empire outpost almost 200 years ago. The fort played an important role in both the War of 1812 and the Rebellion of 1837. The site, located along the Detroit River, includes original earthworks, restored barracks, cannons, an orientation centre and an interactive museum.

Fortifications at Fort Malden have witnessed and participated in the struggles that helped forge a new nation out of the North American wilderness. The fort has been an army garrison, British Indian Department post, dockyard for the Upper Great Lakes sailing fleet and the meeting place for Chief Tecumseh and British General Brock. Fort Malden preserves elements of the second fort built by the British on the eastern bank of the Detroit River to defend the Canadian border from American attack in the first half of the 19th century.

Special events include "Mini-Militia" children's activites, guided walks, historical re-enactments, tactical and musical performances, cookhouse food sampling, cannon and musket firing demonstrations and fireworks. Visitors can immerse themselves in fun, hands-on activities that are guaranteed to make lasting memories.
