It is part of the Windsor census metropolitan area.HistoryAcross the Detroit River from what developed as the state of Michigan in the United States, the town was permanently established in 1796 as a British military fort. Fort Malden was occupied as a garrison.

They built many of their houses in the French style of a century before, giving the new town a historic character.With the Inspirock online itinerary creator, Amherstburg and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
