Situated atop the Niagara Escarpment, it is home to the famous Twin Flight Locks attracting thousands of visitors to marvel at the awe of lifting ships up and onto the Great Lakes. Awarded by the National Trust of Canada, it is the proud recipient of the Prince of Wales Prize for Municipal Heritage which is reflected among more than 50 designated heritage sites including homes, churches, and buildings.
