Discovery North Bay invites you to "North Bay and the Voyageurs"

dnb exhibit openingDiscovery North Bay Museum is pleased to present “North Bay and the Voyageurs”. From 1750-1821, the North Bay area was part of a booming fur trade industry that included the North West Company in Montreal.  The La Vase corridor from Trout Lake to Lake Nipissing was a major highway for voyageurs on their journey from Montreal to the western interior.

In addition to exploring Voyageur life, this exhibit also focuses on local connections with the fur trade including the role of First Nations peoples and the story of local free trader Eustache La Ronde who managed a post at the mouth of the La Vase River.    It features birch bark canoes alongside trade goods, fire-starting equipment, and archaeological objects discovered on site of Fort Laronde.

The media and public are welcome to attend an opening reception held at the museum Wednesday, August 31st at 3:00 pm.
