An addition to local historic landmark
Pictured above is a roadside plaque on the north side of Highway 9 in the Holland Marsh, erected by the King Township Historical Society many years ago. It commemorates the establishment of a portage between Lake Ontario and Lake Simcoe, used by Huron indigenous people for centuries before European explorers arrived here. Beside it (seen below) is a latter-day plaque installed that serves a similar purpose but which includes an engraved geographic representation of the route of the historic Carrying Place portage. This particular plaque is to found at other sites along the historic portage route.Barry Wallace
