Kingston’s History

Louis de Frontenac, governor of New France in 1676 built Fort Cataraqui here in that year. Cavelier de la Salle renamed it Fort Frontenac the next year.

During the Seven Years’ War (1756-1763), the fort was destroyed by the British. The city was reestablished in 1784 to house British loyalists fleeing the American Revolution.

Kingston became the base of the British Eastern Great Lakes Fleet. They built Fort Henry and several Martello towers to protect the entrance to the Rideau Canal for fear of an American invasion.

Kingston was the first capital of the united province of Canada between 1841-42. The first Prime Minister of Canada, Sir John A. Macdonald adopted this city as his permanent residence.
