Constructed in 1785, by the British crown, the chapel was originally given to the Mohawk people, led by Joseph Brant, for their support of the Crown, during the American Revolution. The Hodinosho:ni People, had migrated to Canada, after the British lost the Thirteen Colonies and were rewarded land for the resettlement.

The Mohawk Chapel is the oldest surviving building in Ontario. It is the only remaining building of the Mohawk Village that once existed.

To this day, the Mohawk Chapel represents a friendship between the Mohawk people and the Crown.
