Fort George was built in 1796 after the British left Fort Niagara in response to Jay's Treaty of 1794. The treaty stated the British had to leave fortifications on American soil. The Fort was destroyed in a bombardment on May 25, 1813 by the Americans during the War of 1812, only the Powder Magazine remained. It was later abandoned by the British when they built Fort Mississauga closer to the mouth of the Niagara River. The Fort was rebuilt in the late 1930s as a make work project during the Great Depression. The Fort is now opened to visitors and maintains the image of a Fort during the early 1800s.
