Fort York

Local nameFort York
LocationOld Toronto, Canada

Fort York, also known as Old Fort York, is a historic site of military fortifications and related buildings located in the Fort York neighbourhood, west of downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The fort was built by the British Army and Canadian militia troops in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, to defend the settlement and the new capital of the Upper Canada region from the threat of a military attack, principally from the newly independent United States. It was designated a National Historic Site in 1923. The City of Toronto government designated the site, along with the nearby Fort York Armoury, as a Heritage Conservation District in 1985.
