A must if your in the Thunder Bay area or passing through. Didn’t spend too much time here but the monument is very nice and the view of Lake Superior behind the statue is beautiful.

We didn’t have much time to spend here as we were in a hurry, it was a nice little walk to the statue, which is placed so it has a beautiful back drop of the bay behind it. Really something special to see.

Hi there, it was moved in 1993. In 1993, the MTO relocated the monument to a new rest area directly across the road. An old concrete base marks the original monument's location, and it is still visible in the tall grass from... More
