The Ontario Heritage Trust has been researching and marking our history for over sixty years in the Province. There are many Blue and Gold plaques along the Loyalist Parkway that serve as a reminder of the people and events that have shaped our Province.
The Provincial Plaque Program brings to life the stories and our history that are the building blocks of our Country; the Loyalist Parkway Region plays a major role in presenting that history to new Canadians and visitors. The plaques bring to life a sense of the hardships and conflict our early settlers faced.
If you look a little closer, we have taken great steps to include a secondary but no less important trove of historical plaques and stories erected by local historical groups like the Fairfield Gutzeit Society and Adolphustown Fredericksburgh Heritage.
The Loyalist Parkway is steeped in history and the joy is in discovering it.
During this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, many historical sites and businesses along the Loyalist Parkway that cater to travellers are closed to protect their workers, volunteers and the community. We encourage you to explore our website and plan a trip to enjoy the history and vitality of this special area of Southeastern Ontario in the future. We look forward to welcoming you soon!
The Loyalist Parkway follows the course of Loyalist settlement which commenced in 1784 following the American Revolution. As a living monument to the Loyalist settlers it presents a rich source of information for those with interests in Heritage Tourism, Genealogy, Canadian History, Early Canadian Architecture, and genealogy for those following their United Empire Loyalist roots.Discover Our History
