Peace Bridge Arena was the main sports arena located in Fort Erie, Ontario. Built in 1928, it held 5,000 people. It was located near the Peace Bridge connecting Fort Erie with Buffalo, New York. Both the Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Pirates made the arena a temporary home for the first few games during the 1928–29 NHL season. The arena was also the home of the Buffalo Bisons. On March 17, 1936, the roof collapsed after thirteen inches of heavy snowfall.
