From noon to 4 p.m., guests are invited to bundle up the whole family and make the most of this winter season at the home of one of Hamilton’s earliest settlers. Enjoy the best that winter has to offer and participate in snow-filled fun and games. Visitors can enjoy free hot cider by the fire. Then, come inside to warm up and take a guided tour of the Gage homestead and enjoy some kid-friendly crafts. Admission is free to participate in the activities. Regular admission rates apply to tour the museum.
Battlefield House Museum is a 19th-century homestead that was once home to the Gage family. The Gages worked the land with their 10 children and became a strong voice in the hamlet of Stoney Creek. During the War of 1812, the family retreated to their cellar as the Battle of Stoney Creek raged outside. The 100-foot-high Battlefield Monument stands as a symbol of peace and commemorates those soldiers who died on June 6, 1813. Nestled under the scenic Niagara Escarpment, this historic site encompasses 32 acres of parkland divided by Battlefield Creek.
The National Historic Site is located at 77 King St. W. in Stoney Creek and is open year-round. Regular admission rates are $7 for adults, $6 for seniors and students and $5 for children. The family rate is $20.
