Sainte Marie, Among the Hurons & Discovery Harbour

August 20, 2020
Sainte Marie, Among the Hurons & Discovery Harbour

Join us at Muskoka Travel Service on a trip to Sainte Marie Among The Hurons and a stroll through the beautiful discovery harbour!

The spell of Sainte-Marie among the Hurons lies in the very land upon which it stands. Located along the shores of Georgian Bay – Samuel de Champlain’s “mer douce” – and surrounded by wooded hillsides, this was the ancestral homeland of the Huron Wendat nation, a branch of the Iroquoian family. The Wendat were a matrilineal society of good traders and skillful farmers who called their land Wendake – the land apart.

Discovery Harbour traces its roots back to the original British naval and military base in Penetanguishene, built to safeguard access to Upper Canada after the War of 1812. “His Majesty’s Naval Establishment on Lake Huron”, (as it was first called) kept ships prepared to supply British posts to the northwest.
