English Her Majesty's Chapel of the Mohawks

This was the first Protestant Church built in Ontario, and the first Royal Chapel to belong to First Nations (Aboriginal) people. It was built by the British Crown in 1785 for the Mohawk and Iroquois people (Six Nations of the Grand River) was dedicated in 1788 as a reminder of the original agreements made with the British during the American Revolution. In 1904 the chapel received Royal status from King Edward VII in memory of the longstanding alliance. It is a spiritual and restful place and it is calming to roam the peaceful graveyard which surrounds the chapel. Joseph Brant and his son John Brant are buried here.

Russian Капелла мохоков

Частью пакетной сделки по выделению земель мохокам во главе с Джозефом Брантом была постройка в 1785 году и передача им этой капеллы, одной из трёх в Канаде, имеющих статус королевской капеллы (статус был присвоен в 1904 году, по какому случаю король Эдуард VII лично посетил капеллу). Это самая старая сохранившаяся церковь провинции Онтарио. Деревянная капелла, выкрашенная в белый цвет, довольно проста по архитектуре, но весьма изящна.
