If Niagara history is what you’re into, then a visit to the Laura Secord Homestead is right up your alley. Amber and I had the pleasure of getting a tour by an old high school friend of mine and he was awesome! All the staff is so knowledgeable about the house and the artifacts within it. We were very impressed.

We learned that women use to die from cooking because of their large skirts catching fire, that Laura Secord wasn’t recognized for her efforts until the age of 83 and that she nursed her husband, James, back to health after the war without a doctor, along with many other fun facts!

I think that this was one of the better run historical locations that we have visited and felt like I really learned a lot in the 20 minute tour for only $9.50. Visit the home yourself to learn about the first heroin of Canada and the war of 1812!
