Construction of Sainte-Marie began in 1639, when the French Jesuits identified the site as a suitable base for ministering to the Huron Nation. The fortress became the first European community in Ontario. The Jesuits later torched Sainte-Marie and moved on when turbulence with the Iroquois Indians made the area unsafe for them. Today, the original site has been recreated, and visitors can learn of the colourful past of the area.
