Ontario Re-Visited ~ Nancy Island Historic Site
NOTE: During the Covid 19 crisis, we realized that some of our “Lessons Learned” can’t be used at this time, but they will come in handy, once the crisis has passed. Please stay safe!
Nancy Island Historic Site has served as a historic site since 1928 and is the most viable site to the War of 1812 in Simcoe County and the Georgian Bay region. It represents a major event during the War of 1812: HMS Nancy’s battle against three American schooners on August 14th of 1814.
The island houses the charred hull and artefacts of the HMS Nancy from this pivotal moment in Canadian history. The borders of Canada today are a direct result of the valiant struggles of the Nancy and her crew!
