OBOA COVER FACT
Cover of Issue 79 - 2008, Kingston Ontario. Fort Henry was on the cover of this issue and the Annual Conference was held in Kingston. The first fort was built during the war of 1812 but the suggestion was considered much earlier but never built. In 1783 the British established a post by partly refurbishing and garrisoning the ruined French fort (Frontenac). The second fort is the one you see today. The fort alone cost 70,000 British pounds sterling to construct, which is the equivalent to approximately $35,000,000 in modern Canadian currency. The peninsula on which Fort Henry is built is called Point Henry, named after Henry Hamilton, 1st Lieutenant Governor of Quebec, 1782-85. As of the year 2016, David X the current goat, is the 10th mascot.
