     History
    Founded in 1793 on a triangular plot of land in York (now Toronto), the present fort is actually the second to occupy the seven-acre site. The first was destroyed in an American invasion during the War of 1812.

    The British eventually ceded the fort to Canadian control in the 1840s, and today its eight remaining original structures comprise the oldest buildings in booming Toronto, once a colonial capital and British fort. During a century-and-a-half period, troops were mustered here for numerous wars and rebellions.
