Navy Hall survives as the last building of what was once a large military complex and key supply depot for British forts on the Upper Great Lakes. Constructed in the 1760's the navy Hall complex has been home to Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe, the Provincial Marine, and a mess for the officers of Fort George. Open by appointment year-round.
Just a ten minute walk from Fort George along the Otter Trail, this site has been more than 170 years of continuous military occupation. Begun as a British Army depot sited out of cannon range from the United States, the site became a Canadian Militia training camp. Many Canadians who fought in the Boer War, World War I, World War II and Korea, trained here. The grounds are open year-round. Visitor facilities will be available at this site in 1999.
