Rockway Cemetery   Circa 1830

The ROCKWAY CEMETERY is a lovely little cemetery situated near the Rockway Presbyterian Church. The oldest headstone in Rockway Cemetery is dated 1806.  The tour will include interesting and sometimes surprising stories about early settlers who rest here.

We will be conducting tours of the cemetery every 30 minutes from 10 am – 3 pm.

Rockway Presbyterian Church  Circa 1892

This year marks 215 years of worship for the ROCKWAY PRESBYTERIAN Congregation, making it one of the oldest in the area. A log church evolved into this lovely church building which includes a simple sanctuary and unusual stained glass windows.

Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and some delicious sweets prepared and served by the Rockway Presbyterian Church women.

The Brown Homestead   Circa 1796

Come and tour the historic BROWN HOMESTEAD.

It was the family home on lands settled along the Mohawk Trail by Loyalist John Brown. It is one of Niagara’s oldest houses.

Henry of Pelham Winery  Circa 1794

The HENRY OF PELHAM WINERY is located on six generation family lands originally granted to Loyalist Nicholas Smith. The brick building once served as an inn and tavern for travellers along the Mohawk Trail.

Enjoy a free glass of wine at the winery with the purchase of your tour ticket.
