Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
— War of 1812 —The point to the north protruding into the river is appropriately called "Point Patience" as it was difficult to maneuver around in the era of sail. The south side of the point provided good anchorage, visibility, protection from other ships, and nearby fresh water. On June 26, 1814, British frigate Loire, damaged during the Second Battle of St. Leonard Creek, withdrew here for repairs.
