Queenston is a Compact Rural Community and unincorporated place 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) north of Niagara Falls in the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake , Ontario , Canada . [1] It is bordered by Highway 405 to the south and the Niagara River to the east; its location at the eponymous Queenston Heights [2] on the Niagara Escarpment led to the establishment of the now-defunct Queenston Quarry in the area. [3] Across the river and the Canada–US border is the village of Lewiston, New York . The Lewiston-Queenston Bridge links the two communities.

The Battle of Queenston Heights was the first major battle in the War of 1812 and resulted in a British victory. It took place on 13 October 1812, near Queenston , Upper Canada (the present-day province of Ontario ). It was fought between United States regulars and New York militia forces led by Major General Stephen Van Rensselaer , and British regulars, York and Lincoln militia and Mohawk warriors led by Major General Isaac Brock , and Major General Roger Hale Sheaffe , who took command when Brock was killed.
