|Fort Henry (also know as Fort Henry National Historic Site) is located in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.|
|The Fort sits on Point Henry, a strategic point located near the mouth of the Cataraqui River where it flows in to the St. Lawrence River at the upper end of the Thousand Islands.|
|The present Fort Henry was constructed between 1832 and 1837 to protect the Lake Ontario end of the Rideau Canal.|
|Restorations took place as part of a government work program during the Great Depression. "Old Fort Henry" became a living museum with the introduction of the Fort Henry Guard and was opened on August 1, 1938.|
Our self-guided tour took about 21/2 hours which also included time in the Fort Henry Discovery Center. It was a great way to spend the morning in Kingston!
