Checking in from the Upper Canada Heritage Trail, an old railway bed that takes you from the Escarpment through wine country and into Niagara-on-the-Lake
As you travel the Greater Niagara Circle Route down along the Parkway towards Niagara-on-the-Lake you’ll pass by an unassuming little historical plaque next to a ravine, reading “The Capture Of Fort Niagara 1813.” The marker’s not only a few kilometers from Fort Niagara, it’s on the wrong side of the river.

The cemetery behind St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of the oldest in Ontario. It’s also rumoured by locals to be one of the more haunted sites in the region.
Butler’s Burial Ground, reportedly one of the most haunted sites in all of Niagara, is the last resting place of Lieutenant-Colonel John Butler, along with members of his family and Butler’s Rangers.
