Battlefield Park is a designated as a National Historic Site, located in the City of Hamilton. The Battle of Stoney Creek, which took place in June 1813, was a significant event in Canadian history and an influential turning point in North American history. The 200th commemorative anniversary took place in June 2013.
The City commissioned our firm to design a site identification feature that would reference buildings and landscapes spanning over 200 years; and would provide an easily identifiable site feature to guide tourists to the site.
The Battlefield Monument which was erected for the 100th commemorative anniversary in 1913, and a portion of the restored landscape which was recently completed by the City of Hamilton provided the context for the Site Identification Feature. See images below.
The constructed feature utilized Wiarton and Indiana limestone, with an engraved granite sign face; the feature is located at the intersection of Highway 20 (Centennial Parkway) and King Street East in the former Town of Stoney Creek. The stonework and masonry jointing were detailed to reference monument stone.
