Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of Southern Ontario's most picturesque towns, with a wide main street with its clock tower, lovingly restored homes and shops, tall shade trees, and luxuriant gardens. What many visitors don't realize is that the town is also steeped in history.

Historian and Niagara resident Ronald J. Dale treats the town's past in a lively, informal style. This richly illustrated history tells the story of Niagara-on-the-Lake from its origins as a haven for Loyalist refugees in the eighteenth century to its growth as a fashionable resort today. A chapter is devoted to the Shaw Festival, and appendices offer a Shaw production history and three tours of the town.

Striking contemporary photographs and rare archival images complement the text, making Niagara-on-the-Lake a fascinating book for residents and visitors alike.
