From its beginnings in 1897, the Fort Erie Race Track has always been a special place. Its beauty has been well documented with aesthetics second to none. Great Canadian champions have raced at the "Fort", providing race enthusiasts with thrills and life long memories.

On December 31st, 2012, this will all come to an end. In June it was announced that the Fort Erie Race Track would close at the end of the year following the decision of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation that slot machines would be removed from the site.

There is no argument that the racetrack is Fort Erie's largest employer, and that the December closure will be devastating to a city that is already suffering greatly. Some areas surrounding the track have already become abandoned. A group of older stables to the west of the current racetrack property make up this DB listing. The area is shown on the right-hand side of the satellite imagery photo in the gallery. Two large stables, an old storage garage and an overgrown race-track make up this site.
