Granny White’s Road creek view


this is a little south of Hyw 12 near Victoria Harbour, Ontario and runs alongside the archaeological site of the 17th century Huron-Wendat village of St. Louis which was attacked in a large battle in 1649. Ste. Marie Among the Hurons is about 6

kilometres west.

apparently there is some doubt about the designation of this village site as St. Louis.  There was a three day battle with the Iroquois carrying and using many matchlock firearms given to them by the English colonies, yet no musket balls have been found during excavation of the site.
