This pile of dirt with foliage on it, seems so unimportant - but it was part of where the country of Canada was made. General Brock died on this hill (sic) and a grateful populace, NOT an adoring government, raised the funds and built the homage to a great man. One of the gifts Brock gave us was the template...

Stopped in February and enjoyed a wonderful walk around the grounds and monument. Recommend to all interested in learning more about our history and the battles that occurred in the area during the war of 1812. Very pleased to see the new monuments to acknowledge the support provided by the Native American Tribes during the war.

An impressive historic landmark and worth a visit when in the Niagara area. It's too bad idiot vandals stole the bronze plaque that was bolted to the rock at the bottom of the monument and ruined it for everyone else. Seriously...is there a limit to how low some people will stoop to make a dollar?

General Brock looks out on top over the mighty Niagara River. Lots of fun to climb to the top. Nearby is the new monument to natives called the Landscape of Nations. Amust see.
