Fort York

Fort York is an historic military fortification designated as a National Historic Site of Canada in 1923. The original garrisons were built in 1797, but destroyed by the retreating British in the Battle of York, 1813. Today's fort was built by engineers immediately after the War of 1812, and was sufficient enough to repel another attack in 1814. The British Army occupied Fort York from 1793 to the 1850s and transferred it to Canada, which used it until 1932. However, the City of Toronto owned the Fort from 1903 onwards.
