Stoney Creek was first settled by United Empire Loyalists in 1786. Later it was the site of an important battle in the War of 1812.
The village became part of Saltfleet Township in 1791 and Saltfleet became part of Wentworth County in 1816. In 1974, Saltfleet
Township became the Town of Stoney Creek. With continued growth, the City of Stoney Creek was born in 1984. In 2001, Stoney Creek
was amalgamated with the City of Hamilton. Today, with a population of more than 62,000, Stoney Creek has large communities of
Italians and Eastern Europeans (especially from the former Yugoslavia) and is one of the fastest growing suburbs in the Greater
Hamilton Area.

First stop on the tour is Battlefield House Museum and Park. Battle re-enactments are held each June in the park.

Battlefield House (built 1796) now houses the museum.

This monument was erected in 1913 to commemorate a century
of peace between Canada and the United States

Nash-Jackson House (built 1818) was moved to Battlefield Park in 1999.

Now, onto Olde Town Stoney Creek

The Devil's Punchbowl. There is nothing to show the scale, but that is a 120 foot drop

The actual Stoney Creek seen from 150 feet above:

Erland Lee House (built 1801). This was the site of the world's first Women's
Institute. It is now a museum and national historic site.
