Barrie is full of history for you to learn about. Did you know that Barrie played an important role in the War of 1812. During the War, the city became a supply depot for British forces. The city was named in 1833 after Sir Robert Barrie, who was in charge of the naval forces in Canada.
Barrie was also the final destination for one branch of the Underground Railroad. In the mid-19th century, this network of secret routes allowed many American slaves to enter Barrie and the surrounding area.
