  • Her Majesty’s Chapel of the Mohawks, Mohawk Street, on the outskirts of Brantford, (519) 756-0240. This was the first Protestant Church built in Ontario, and the First Royal Chapel to belong to Native People. It is such a spiritual and restful place and it is calming to roam the peaceful graveyard which surrounds the chapel.
  • Chiefswood, south of Brantford on highway 54. Open May 23rd and October 9th, and between October and May by appointment only. Brantford was the birthplace and home of Canadian Native Poet, Emily Pauline Johnson and her home is now a National Historic Site.
