Midland Harbour Mural

 Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons

This mural is said to be the largest outdoor historical mural in North America. Well, you do have to admit that 250-feet by 80-feet is BIG! The settlement depicted here is what the French Jesuit settlement would have looked like in the 1640s, the first European settlement in Ontario.

In Midland Harbour on Georgian Bay

It is wonderful to see key moments in history displayed in such a big way! The artist or artists deserve a medal for painting in such an extraordinarily large scale.
