Fort Henry



1 Fort Henry Drive, Kingston • (613) 542-7388

Fort Henry was built from 1832 to 1837 to replace an existing fortification from the War of 1812 era. Situated atop Point Henry, the Fort protected the naval dockyard at Point Frederick, the entrance of the Rideau Canal and the town of Kingston, which was the major transshipment point along the supply route between Montreal or Ottawa and all points west. Fort Henry now offers a new discovery centre featuring interactive programming such as a virtual cannon firing onto a tall ship on the St. Lawrence.
