Visitor Centre

As part of the War of 1812 Bicentennial, a new Welcome Centre was built at Nancy Island Historic Site. Nancy Island has served as a historic site since 1928 and is the most viable and related site to the War of 1812 in Simcoe County and the Georgian Bay Region. It represents a major event during the War of 1812 - HMS Nancy’s August 14, 1814 battle against three American schooners. The island houses the charred hull and artefacts of the HMS Nancy from the pivotal moment in Canadian history. Today, the borders of Canada are a direct result of the valiant struggle of the Nancy and her crew.

The Welcome Centre houses a gift shop, tourist information, washrooms and interpretation relating to both Nancy Island and Wasaga Beach’s rich natural and cultural history.
