Join the Nottawasaga Valley Conservation Authority (NVCA) and the Friends of Historic Fort Willow for the 2020 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 4, come join our re-enactors dressed in the War of 1812 clothing selfies. They will also answer your questions about the fort and its role in the history of Canada.
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.
