Mohawk Chapel Opens for the Tour Season

Mohawk Chapel Opens for the Tour Season

Her Majesty’s Royal Chapel of the Mohawks (commonly referred to as “Mohawk Chapel” by locals)’s tour season is Victoria Day (May 19) through to Thanksgiving Day (October 7) weekend.
 
The Chapel was built in 1785 following the relocation of many members of the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations) Confederacy to the Haldimand Tract from their homelands in northern New York State. It was built as a replacement for the Queen Anne Chapel that had to be abandoned at Fort Hunter following the American Revolution. It is the first Protestant Church built in Upper Canada, and its early congregation members included Joseph Brant’s son, John Brant.
 
Today the Chapel operates as an Anglican Church, holding four services per year, as well as special events, weddings, baptisms, and funeral services. One of their most popular draws is their stained glass windows; to learn more about the stained glass windows at the Chapel, read part 1 and part 2 of our Discover Brantford blogs.
 
The Chapel is open to the public from Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10am to 3pm daily. Take a tour of the Chapel, or visit them during one of their special events, including:
