Average Reviews


Nancy Island Historic Site has served as a historic site since 1928 and is the most viable site to the War of 1812 in Simcoe County and the Georgian Bay region.  It represents a major event during the War of 1812: HMS Nancy’s battle against three American schooners on August 14th of 1814.  The island houses the charred hull and artefacts of the HMS Nancy from this pivotal moment in Canadian history.  The borders of Canada today are a direct result of the valiant struggles of Nancy and her crew!

The British Schooner, Nancy, was a fur trading vessel during the War of 1812 and was on the Nottawasaga River August 14, 1814. On that day, Nancy was destroyed in battle. Today you can see the hull of the Nancy and a display which tells the crew’s heroic story.
