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, the Nancy was destroyed in battle. Today you can see the hull of the Nancy and a display which tells the crew’s heroic story.
During the spring, summer, and fall join park staff as they bring the story of the Nancy and her crew to life! You have the opportunity to take a tour of the site and interact with a historical character from Wasaga’s past.
