  • Laura Secord was a heroine on the British side of the War of 1812. The house, that of an upper class family of the time, is pretty intact and gives a really good picture of life in the era. It's a sho...  more »
  • A big shout out to our guide Nathan! He was engaging, witty and incredibly knowledgable. It was fascinating to learn about Laura Secord's life and her influence on Canadian history.  more »
  • I found this site extremely informative about Canada's early history. It is hard to believe how far Laura Record walked to give the warning of imminent attack.  more »

  • A quaint attraction with an over priced gift shop attached. Great little spot to get a bit of history. The guides didn't bother to hide their frustration at the Laura Secord Chocolate co. who had owned the homestead previously and spun quite a few yarns to unsuspecting tourists. You could also hear the pride in their voices when they talked about Laura's journey, and the subsequent defeat of the Americans (at least in the battle of Beaverdams). The Laura Secord Homestead is a refreshing bit of old fashioned charm, away from the flashy tourist spots near the falls.
  • It was pretty goo d.Thankful it was free on Canada Day.Not worth the price of admission
  • If you are a history buff, this will not disappoint! Tour of the house and grounds as well as life history of our Canadian heroine!
  • Historic home that has been rebuilt with period materials and furniture. A little.expensive for the brief and basic tour but if you like history it may be worth a stop.
  • For such a small place, it has a lot to offer. And the staff is very knowledgeable and eager to get into conversations about local history and architecture. Well worth your money and your time.
