Whitehern Historic House & Garden
Prominently situated in a walled garden, Whitehern is an outstanding example of a mid-nineteenth-century urban estate originally owned by a wealthy industrialist. The house today has a multi-layered character that reflects the alterations made by three generations of the McQuesten family. It contains elements from many time periods–Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian–all overlaid with original possessions dating up to 1939 when the Honorable Thomas McQuesten was Minister of Highways.

Battlefield House Museum & Park
The Gage Homestead, built in 1796, captures the way of life during the early 19th century. The Gages worked the land with their ten children and became a strong voice in the hamlet of Stoney Creek. During the War of 1812, the family fled to the cellar as the Battle of Stoney Creek raged outside. The Battlefield Monument stands as a symbol of peace and commemorates those soldiers who died on June 6, 1813. Nestled under the Niagara Escarpment, this historic site is located on 32 acres of parkland linked to the Bruce Trail.
