Tour Old Fort Niagara by Candlelight
Old Fort Niagara is a fascinating and educational historic site that dates back to over 300 years ago. The structure you see today is often referred to as “The French Castle,” thanks to it having been built by the French is 1726. The British then gained control of the fort in 1759. It was passed between the British and the Americans over the years until it was finally ceded to the United States (for the second time) at the end of the War of 1812.
During The Castle by Candlelight event, the French Castle will be tastefully decorated for the season and lit entirely by candles. You’ll be experiencing the fort just as they would have in 1759! There will also be historic figures wandering the grounds if you have any questions about the site. Make sure you stand for the firing of the grand feu de joie! Admission is $10 per person and you can feel good about attending as this event is a fundraiser to benefit educational programming.
