FORT LEN­NOX NA­TIONAL HIS­TORIC SITE

An hour south of Mon­tréal, hop onto a ferry and cross the Riche­lieu River to Fort Len­nox Na­tional His­toric Site and you are trans­ported back in time to 19th cen­tury Bri­tish North Amer­ica. The fort was orig­i­nally built as a strong­hold against po­ten­tial in­va­sion from the U.S. to the south. Soldiers in pe­riod cos­tume act as in­ter­pre­tive guides, giv­ing a glimpse into what gar­ri­son life was like for Bri­tish Red­coats and their fam­i­lies. Fort Len­nox is also a place for peace­ful and re­flec­tive walks along the fort’s stone ram­parts or on one of the trails through the sur­round­ing green space
