The town of Gananoque in Ontario, Canada, will unveil the Joel Stone Heritage Park with a musical prelude at 10 a.m. Monday.
The park is on the waterfront at the end of Water Street.
Distinguished guests will include Andrew Pocock, British high commissioner to Canada, Member of Parliament Gordon Brown, Member of Provincial Parliament Steve Clark and Judge John Matheson, who helped develop both the maple leaf Canadian flag and the Order of Canada.
Music will be provided by David R. Maracle and others.
The founding of Gananoque has been attributed to Joel Stone. The entrepreneur established a home there in 1789. He commanded militia forces in the area during the War of 1812.
The event is sponsored by the Canadian-based St. Lawrence War of 1812 Alliance.
