The history of Niagara-on-the-Lake dates back to the late 18th century, when the town, then known as Newark, was the capital of Upper Canada from 1791 to 1796. Nothing remains of that time, however, for the town was burned during the War of 1812, which pitted the British colonies against the United States. After the American invasion, the town was rebuilt, and graced with elegant English-style homes, which have been beautifully preserved and still give this community at the mouth of the Niagara River a great deal of charm. Some of these houses have been converted into elegant inns, which welcome visitors to the celebrated Shaw Festival, or those who are simply lured here by the town's English atmosphere.
