We are a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the early history of Canada, especially the War of 1812. We are self-supporting and receive no funding from the town of Amherstburg

Our new headquarters is at the "Commissariat" King's Navy Yard Park, 224 Dalhousie Street, Amherstburg, Ontario.

The Commissariat Building is owned and operated by Parks Canada, and was built in 1831 as the Fort Malden office in charge of purchasing flour, beef, straw, firewood and other staples for the garrison from local contractors. The Commissariat Department also managed the pay and finances of Fort Malden.

Although it functioned as a private residence since the latter 1800's, it was purchased by Parks Canada in 1983, and restored to its original appearance. The Provincial Marine received a grant in 2002 from the Trillium Foundation to rent the building, and operate it as a headquarters and interpretive centre for the Life and Times of Provincial Marine sailors and their families.
