We leave for a journey back in time to learn about Huron History and Ontario's first European community starting in the 1600s. Our trip starts at the Huronia Museum located in Midland that features a replica of a "pre-contact" Huron/Ouendat village, including a lookout tower, wigwam and a full-size longhouse. We then have a native and French inspired meal at Ste Marie Among the Hurons followed by a tour of the mission. The final stop will be at Martyrs Shrine, a national shrine to the Canadian martyrs. The shrine is a spiritual place and an architectural marvel combining Native and European elements with unique stained glass windows and a canoe shaped ceiling.
