Battle of the Windmills Historic Site
Ranked #2 of 8 things to do in Prescott
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 June 2013

As with the fort, the windmill was closed. However, the signs were very explanatory and I learned a great deal that I did not know.

There is a beautiful house to the left of the mill across the road. I suspect it is the original mill owner's with add-ons. Gorgeous.

When travelling the Parkway from Gananoque or any point east, there is lots to see of a historic nature! Take a picture of the well preserved Battle point! Warning eastern seaway area prone to wild parsnip and hogweed, so look up before trip! Very noxious! It is hard to tell whether there will be any tour etc, with government cutbacks! Lots of interesting history, watch for signs, often small! Lovely old home beside and great view of waterway!

A bit isolated, but if you're out for a drive, it is an imaginative place to stop for a picnic.

During a four-day period in November, 1838 British troops and local militia defeated an invasion force of 300 American " Hunters " and Canadian rebels. The Battle of the Windmill victory prevented the invasion force from capturing Fort Wellington, Ontario, and cutting the St. Lawrence communications link, which would have left Upper Canada open to invasion.
