Burlington Heights, where Dundurn stands today, was occupied by the British military from 1813 -1815. Housed in Battery Lodge, the museum tells the story of the people who lived in the area during the War of 1812. Blood Ties to a Gentle Landscape showcases the historical figures of this area through documentary evidence, period artifacts, and stories passed down through generations. Explore the Hamilton and Scourge – Sunken Sunset exhibit, view a film, and experience life as a soldier in our Discovery Gallery. Through artifacts and images the First World War exhibit located in The Coach House reveals the impact the war had on those who fought.
