Flagg Creek Bridge, Mariatown, Ontario

Flagg Creek Bridge One | N 44.52.16 W 75.14.26 | Mariatown, Ontario, Canada




The submerged King’s Highway No 2 bridge over Flagg Creek between Mariatown and Morrisburg, Ontario. A culvert 250 metres inland now carries County Road 4 over Flagg Creek; the intact old bridge – now with more water over it than under it – continues to carry the old highway over Flagg Creek’s submerged creek bed.

At this location in 1813, where Flagg Creek once met the St Lawrence River, many of the 8,000 American troops - the largest ever hostile military force to attack Canada - were assembled before the Battle of Crysler’s Farm. The Americans were defeated by a much smaller force of about 900 British regulars and militia over the next days. Aside from one faded, historical road sign this historical site is largely forgotten and ignored.
