Nancy Island Historic Site Doors Open Simcoe County

Nancy Island Historic Site

This site houses the charred hull and artifacts of the HMS Nancy, a ship that battled three American schooners during the War of 1812. This event marked a pivotal moment in Canadian history. Canada’s borders today are a direct result of the valiant struggles of the Nancy and her crew. The island has served as a historic site since 1928.
