Join NVCA and the Friends of Historic Fort Willow for the 2019 Canada Historic Places Day.

Fort Willow Conservation Area is recognized as a national historic site for its role in the development of Simcoe County and our nation. During the War of 1812, the site was a strategic storage depot known as “Willow Depot,” located at the end of the Nine Mile Portage from Kempenfelt Bay.

On July 6, from 10 am to 3 pm, re-enactors in period dress will be on-site to answer your questions about the fort and its role in the history of Canada.

NVCA is waiving the parking fee at Fort Willow for the day, so come and enjoy!

Please note that Fort Willow features an accessible trail, a lovely picnic pavilion, and outhouses, but does not have running water or food/beverage available for sale.
