Visitors to Prescott - the historic fort town on the St. Lawrence River have many attractions to visit throughout the year. From May until October, Fort Wellington National Historic Site and the Battle of the Windmill are open to visitors. During the summer months the Forwarders' Museum and Visitor Information Centre offers the visitors displays about the founding of Prescott and the tremendous heritage of our ancestors. You will get to know the Jessups, the Wisers, the Forwarders, our Loyalist heritage, and what made our town grow and prosper almost 200 years ago.
Our beautiful waterfront, historic walking tour, 18-hole golf course, sports venues, historic downtown shopping district and factory outlet stores all offer something unique for visitor and resident alike. Plan to stay a few days in historic Prescott.
