The peninsula was the site for several significant battles between the
Americans and British under General Brock during the war of 1812, and is
the home area of Laura Secord.
Here, Sir Adam Beck generated the first Hydro-Electric Power in Ontario.
The Welland Ship Canal, as part of the St. Lawrence Seaway, provides a
