Situated within Queenston Heights Park about ten kilometers (six miles) north of the Falls, this monument serves as a tribute to Major-General Isaac Brock, the British commander who lost his life here defending the area during the War of 1812. Fifty-six meters (183 feet) high, the impressive monument was built in 1856 and replaces an earlier one blown up by a massive gunpowder blast in 1840. The park itself, maintained by the Niagara Parks Commission, features the beginning of the Bruce Trail as well as the Queenston Heights Restaurant.
