Niagara-on-the-Lake's Fort George to get a face lift

Breaking News

Niagara-on-the-Lake's most recognizable War of 1812 site is getting a major $2.75-million facelift.

Extensive restoration work of the 80-year-old replica of Fort George started about three weeks ago.

The project, the biggest in the national historic site's history, will stabilize the crumbling structure.

Six large bastions, or cannon platforms, and sections of decaying palisade, or wooden fence, are being replaced to strengthen the outer walls of the fort.

That work alone will cost taxpayers $2.5 million.
