That are few important sites in Queenston – the Laura Secord Homestead, which commemorates this war heroine, the Brock Monument, which commemorates the iconic military leader, the restored home of rebel publisher William Lyon Mackenzie, which contains 500 years of printing technology, and Willowbank, an exceptional example of Classical Revival architecture and the country estates of Upper Canada.
