Historic 34 Foot Montreal Canoe

See a replica of a historic 34 foot Montreal canoe used during the fur trade era on the Great lakes. From the 1600’s through the 1800”s, these large birch bark canoes were used to transport the cargo of trade goods coming in from Europe and Montreal to trade with the Native Americans for animal furs. The entire industry relied on the Voyageurs that would paddle these canoes and transport the cargo. Become a Voyageur for a picture , as you learn more about the history of these canoes and the Great Lakes Fur Trade.
