Mural Routes Member(s): Allan Bender Completed: July 1992

The Onondaga was built near Kingston in 1790 and served as flagship of the Provincial Marine until her retirement in 1797. This was the ship in which Lieutenant-Governor John Graves Simcoe and his wife Elizabeth sailed across Lake Ontario, from Niagara-on-the-Lake to the town of York, (now Toronto) to establish the capital of Upper Canada (now Ontario).

This mural was painted in 1992 as part of the original Heritage Trail; it was restored in 2017 by Blinc Studios.
