  • Stopped by the Laura Secord house during my trip to Niagara on the Lake. The museum and property are closed in the winter so I wasn't able to go inside. Thankfully, the house and surrounding grounds are beautiful and I enjoyed walking around Queenston. In case you're not aware, this is the restored residence of Laura Secord. She helped save the British during the War of 1812 after overhearing a conversation and running 35 km through the woods to warn the British army. During the summer you can tour the inside of the home and learn more about the history of Laura Secord. There's a nice gift shop as well as free parking and electrical charging for electric cars.
  • Totally gnarly homestead and I wish we had gone in season... looking forward to going in the summer and meeting Laura Secord and tasting her world famous Superkid ice cream. That ice cream won us the war of 1812.
  • A historic national site cannot miss if you enjoy colonial history of Canada. lots of parking and big clean bathroom. A favourite place for cyclist to stop by for a break and enjoy refreshments and great selection of ice cream. Oh did I mention they are very generous with the scoop size of the ice cream. Yum! Yum!
  • Great place to visit for history enthusuasts and out of country visitors.
  • 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.
