It is situated on the highest point of land, overlookng the St. Lawrence River, Lake Ontario, and Rideau Canal. Fort Henry Guards dress in period uniforms, drill, march and stand sentry. Big canons are fired, and fifers and drummers add to the tours' atmosphere. Fort Henry is both a museum and a spectacular historic site. Once inside the fortification's wooden gates visitors enter a marvellous reproduction of 19th century military life.
