Fort Sainte Marie In Canada

The drawing and description of Fort St. Marie was found in Notes of sites of Huron villages in the township of Tiny (Simcoe County) ... .

On Christian Island are to be seen the ruins of the second fortified Jesuit mission of Ste Marie and the remains of an extensive Huron village surrounding it. The fort is situated on the picturesque bay in the southeast part of the island and at the east end of the present Ojibway village. Its walls enclosing about quarter of an acre were built of stone and lime.
