About the FoundationThe Niagara Foundation was established as a voluntary charitable organization in 1962 to promote the history, traditions and culture of the Niagara area.Within a few months of its inauguration the Foundation commissioned an inventory of Niagara's historic buildings; later a similar extensive survey of the historical buildings in the former Niagara Township outside the old Town boundaries was also completed.To commemorate Canada's centennial in 1967 the Foundation published, The Early Architecture of the Town and Township of Niagara by Peter Stokes and edited by Harry Picken and Gerry Wooll. This authoritative limited edition reference book has become a collector's item; a soft cover version was republished several years ago. On the occasion of the Town's bicentennial in 1981 the Foundation published the unique colourful isometric map of the old Town. In 1992 the Foundation helped finance the Niagara Historical Society's successful publication, The Capital Years 1792-1796.In recognition of the little-known fact that gravestones are very much part of our cultural heritage, an important photographic survey of 20 local graveyards was carried out with the Foundation's support.Historical buildings have always been the prime focus of the Foundation. In some instances this has involved advocacy for the preservation of buildings endangered through development. Others were buildings threatened by deterioration and lack of use. The Foundation has undertaken the proactive implementation of restorations on behalf of other institutions, re-couping these expenses through direct fundraising in the community, or by leasing back the facility until expenses were recovered. In some cases, the Foundation provided direct financial support to other groups' restoration projects.The first restorations by the Foundation was The Apothecary on the main street, which was one of the oldest continuing pharmacies in Canada. Vacated in 1965, it was purchased and restored by the Foundation with the support of Ontario Heritage (now owners) and the Ontario College of Pharmacists (now operators) to a museum of pharmacy. Other projects include the restoration of St. Marks Church Manse, the William Steward House, and the Foghorn House which you will find in later pages of this site.Through the efforts of charter member Frank Hawley, the Foundation acquired three 19th century carriages: a convertible landau used during a Royal visit to Niagara in 1901, a hunting trap and a hearse which was manufactured in St. Catharines. The first two were restored by the Foundation while the hearse was transferred to the local funeral home with the promise that it would be completely restored and made available to the public.The Foundation was the recipient of important local furniture from two local estates. Many pieces have been restored and now furnish the Foghorn House."Over the years the Foundation along with other heritage groups have made presentations to various levels of government, commissions, committees etc. promoting the preservation of the architectural, cultural and environmental integrity of Niagara-on-the-Lake.The efforts of the Niagara Foundation have primarily been financed by its Annual House Tours for which the final tour was held in 2012 commemorating our 50th anniversary. The Tours have provided thousands of interested people an opportunity to learn and appreciate more about Niagara's wonderful architectural heritage.

At Willowbank, a rare and beautiful 19th century estate is the setting for an innovative educational and training program in heritage conservation. The two come together in a living, learning and working environment that celebrates the preservation of our cultural and historical legacy. On the grounds and within the early 19th Century mansion, visitors discover restoration-in-action, as they view the site's rich archaeology, architecture and landscape undergoing research and treatment. The School's full-time program involves students and 50 plus faculty members, and its educational outreach extends far into the community through lecture programs and conferences. Community events-from jazz festivals to a harvest ball, weddings to village picnics-grace the grounds today as they have for centuries. Willowbank is open for tours May through August, and by appointment from September through April. Through Friends of Willowbank, members can become involved in Willowbank's rich and varied activities. Volunteers help plan and organize events, participate in site activities such as archaeology and landscape restoration, and contribute in other ways related to each person's interest and talents.

Hours: May 1 to August 31: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily - September 1 to April 30: by appointment.The Lincoln and Welland Regiment Museum began as an independent effort by certain members of the Regiment who saw the need to preserve and display the extensive collection of artefacts in the possession of the unit and its members both past and present at the time. A small museum was established in two rooms in the Niagara Falls Armoury.With the closure of the Niagara Falls Armoury in 1999, the museum was forced to temporarily cease operations. After some time it was decided that the ideal location for the new museum should be in Niagara on the Lake as it was in this town that the Regiment could trace its earliest Canadian roots. In 2000, this move took place.Currently, the Museum is located in a series of buildings known as Butler's Barracks National Historic Site. The buildings are owned and maintained by Parks Canada The name is a misnomer, however, as Butler's Rangers never occupied these buildings.Following the War of 1812, the British decided to relocate the Indian Department and built a complex on this site which eventually grew to 19 buildings. The complex became known as Butler's Barracks, a carry-over as Colonel John Butler had been a Deputy Superintendent in the Indian Department.The two-story building that houses the museum's main galleries, known as the soldier's barracks, was built in 1817. It is believed that the outer log walls and main support beams are from the original building, and the walls dividing the rooms were put in about 1821. This building has special significance in that a company of Lincoln and Welland Regiment was headquartered there throughout the 1960's. The museum's vehicle collection is housed in a Gun shed that was built in 1821 to house field guns (cannon) for the Royal Artillery. With a significant amount of volunteer effort the new museum held a ribbon cutting ceremony and opened to the public in 2001. Known as a 'hidden' historical gem in Niagara, the museum has received numerous accolades for its interpretation of not only the history of the Regiment, but more importantly the role of the citizen soldier in the shared heritage of Niagara.Between 2001 and 2007 the museum was open by appointment only. That final year a decision was made to expand the operations for the museum and open full time during the tourist season in Niagara. Since then the museum has maintained regular operating hours and is proud to employ local Students through Young Canada Works, a government program that promoted the employment for post-secondary students in heritage jobs related to their fields of study.Over the past few years the museum has expanded its operations to incorporate military vehicles of historical significance to the Regiment and the Canadian Military. A dedicated group of volunteers spend countless hours restoring and maintaining our vehicle 'fleet' in functioning non static order. This allowed the museum to adopt a unique heritage preservation role as one of the few museums in Ontario with a large collection of operational military vehicles for display and community outreach.Over the next few years the museum will continue to refine and expand its operations to ensure that the public at large will have opportunities to enjoy and learn about our shared Canadian military heritage.
