EXPERIENCE THE CULTURE OF SIX NATIONS OF THE GRAND RIVER


H.M. ROYAL CHAPEL OF THE MOHAWKS

Visit one of the oldest buildings in Canada!

The Mohawk Chapel is located along the bank of the Grand River on Six Nations land located within Brantford. Built in 1785, Her Majesty’s Royal Chapel of the Mohawks is the last remaining building of the original Mohawk Village and is now the oldest surviving Church in Ontario.   The Chapel is open 10:00 am – 4:00 pm for guided tours in June, July & August.  It operates as a National Historic Site and a Chapel of Ease.  The Chapel is a popular venue for weddings, special holiday services, baptisms and other events to include our kitchen & dining area.

David Mitson designed eight stained glass windows and from 1959-1962 they were installed. The windows depict significant events that interpret significant historical events for the Six Nations people. Also, inside the Chapel, above the altar are towering black metal plaques embossed with Christian prayers in old Mohawk language. Outside, the grounds of the Mohawk Chapel are the final resting places of historical figures Joseph and John Brant— a father and son who played key roles in the American Revolution, The War of 1812, and the displacement of Mohawks from other territories in New York.

The Mohawk Chapel is a beautiful historical site with so much to offer. Take a walk around the grounds to view plaques unveiled by Her Majesty the Queen, memorials of Joseph Brant, Pauline Johnson, Susan Hardie and more.
