Description From Owner:
  • Pop. 435. On the S shore of Christian I., Simcoe C., in Georgian Bay offL. Huron near the entrance to Nottawasaga Bay, 20 km. NW of Midland and reached by a 5-km. ferry trip operated only in summer.
  • In 1649 a few French missionaries and Hurons, who had survived the massacre at Ste. Marie (now Midland), sought refuge on the island and built another mission known as Fort Ste. Marie II.
  • A severe winter, followed by a failure of their com crop, forced the missionaries and the First Nations Peoples to return to Quebec.
  • In 1830 many of the First Nations Peoples in the county were gathered on a reserve in the Coldwater area.
  • Within a few years, pressure from land-hungry settlers forced the government to move the First Nations Peoples, some of whom were resettled on Christian I., now a First Nations Peoples reserve.
  • The outline of Fort Ste. Marie II still can be traced in stones.
