Butler's Barracks National Historic Site

Following the destruction of Fort George by cannon fire in 1813, the British decided to move their key fortification inland. They began construction of storehouses and military bunkhouses on the south-western edge of the military lands (or "Commons) - well out of reach of American guns. By 1854 this area became known as Butler's Barracks - named after John Butler and his "Butler's Rangers". You can visit the site today and find the old buildings still standing.
