Niagara Falls in Niagara Region, Ontario — Central Canada
Battle Ground Hotel
By the late 1860’s the number of visitors to Lundy’s Lane Battlefield dwindled drastically. In the late 1870’s Fralick’s wooden tower was dismantled and the hotel converted to a private residence. Adam Fralick died in 1877 and was buried in the adjacent Drummond Hill Cemetery. The property was acquired by Ruth Redmond in the mid-1950’s and donated to the City of Niagara Falls in 1996. Restored to its original appearance, the Battle Ground Hotel opened as a public museum in 2002.
