Inscription. [Text on Marker]:

Immediately after the War of 1812, a new wooden storehouse was built on this site. It was converted into barracks for British troops during the border troubles of 1838. The building remained in use until the 20th century serving as a medical commissary for Canadian troops during World War I. During the 1930s it was moved to the location in front of you by the Niagara Parks Commission and encased in stone.

More about this marker. The Navy Hall is located on the Canadian side of the Niagara River, just a short distance upstream from Fort Niagara which is located on the United States side of the River. Because the Navy Hall was located within the range of the cannon situated at Fort Niagara, its structures ended up being destroyed by American artillery fire during the War of 1812.
