Cape Merry Battery

Cape Merry Battery features the remnants of a gun powder magazine from the fur trade era (1746). Strategically misplaced, the battery was dismantled and rebuilt in 1749 on its present site. Designed to supplement the defenses of PWF, the battery was constructed with six cannon emplacements. One lone cannon stands today, a stark reminder of its intent. Plaques honour Rev. Rasmus Jensen and the Fort Churchill fur trade post. Guided tours are available, please check Parks Canada office for tour times.
