English: The Navy Yard established in 1789 as a trans-shipment point for the Great Lakes and as the Provincial Marine's Lake Ontario base was administered by the Admiralty after 1813. During the War of 1812 Commodore James Yeo, R. N., commanded a considerable squadron built in these yards, including the 112-gun ST. LAWRENCE. This base posed a constant threat to the Americans, who never felt strong enough to risk a direct attack. The Rush-Bagot agreement of 1817, which limited armaments on the lakes, brought about a decline in activity, and by mid-century the yards were closed.
L'arsenal de la marine, construit ici en 1789 par la Provincial Marine et administré par l'Amirauté à compter de mars 1813, était le port de transbordement des Grands Lacs. Le commodore James Yeo y commanda durant la guerre de 1812 une flotte considérable construite ici, dont le plus imposant navire fut le ST. LAWRENCE. Les Américains, pour des raisons stratégiques, voulaient s'emparer de l'arsenal mais ne passèrent jamais à l'action. Le désarmement naval convenu lors de l'accord Rush-Bagot (1817) immobilisa l'activité à l'arsenal. Au milieu du siècle son utilité périclita devant les nouveaux moyens de transport.
