About Drummond Hill Cemetery 
The guided tour of Drummond Hill Cemetery will explore graves and monuments connected to the War of 1812, the Underground Railroad, a Niagara Falls daredevil, and Canadian heroine Laura Secord. Designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1937, the Drummond Hill Cemetery stands on the hallowed ground of the Battle of Lundy’s Lane, the bloodiest battle of the War of 1812. The area became known as Drummond Hill, in honour of British General Sir Gordon Drummond. 

About the Battle Ground Hotel Museum
A guided tour at the Battleground Hotel Museum will transport you back to 1850's tavern life in the quaint town of historic Drummondville. This small town thrived from its proximity to the falls and its location on one of the bloodiest battles fought on Canadian soil. The tavern remains as one of the earliest examples of Niagara Falls tourism, as many tourists came to see the battlefield of Lundy’s Lane.
