Nancy Island Historic Site

This island — a National Historic Site since 1928 — houses the charred remains of, and artifacts from, the HMS Nancy (c. 1789), a ship that battled three American schooners during the War of 1812. This event marked a pivotal moment in Canadian history. Join a park interpreter who will bring the story of the HMS Nancy and her crew to life.
