Her Majesty's Royal Chapel of the Mohawks is the oldest building in Ontario and the first Anglican church in Upper Canada. It is one of six Chapels Royal outside of the United Kingdom, one of two in Canada, the other being Christ Church Royal Chapel in Deseronto, Ontario. In 1981 the chapel was designated a National Historic Site of Canada.HistoryConstructed near Brantford, Ontario in 1785 by the British Crown, the chapel was given to the Mohawk Indians led by Joseph Brant, for their support of the Crown during the American Revolution. They had migrated to Canada after Britain lost the Thirteen Colonies and were awarded land for resettlement. Originally called St. Paul's, the church is commonly referred to as the Mohawk Chapel. It is part of the Anglican Diocese of Huron and has a chaplain appointed by the Bishop of Huron in consultation with the congregation.In 1850, the remains of Joseph Brant were moved from the original burial site in Burlington, to a tomb at the Mohawk Chapel. His son John Brant was also interred in the tomb. Next to Brant's tomb is a boulder memorializing the writer Pauline Johnson, who was born in the nearby Six Nations Reserve and attended services in the Chapel.Add Mohawk Chapel to your Brantford travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Brantford trip itinerary builder.
