Photo: Old Stone Wall Sainte Marie Among Hurons Complex Midland Ontario

An old stone wall sits at the entrance to the French Jesuit settlement Sainte-Marie among the Hurons, which was in operation between 1639 and 1649. It is located near the modern town of Midland in Ontario, Canada.

The complex of Sainte-Marie among the Hurons was the first non-Aboriginal settlement in what is now modern-day Ontario. This is a reconstruction of the mission that is a living museum, an open air museum that people can actually walk through and feel as if they have stepped back in time to experience what life was like when the buildings were in operation. This old stone wall, in the foreground of the photograph, dates back to the original settlement and is protected by a barrier in order to preserve the remains.

It was in 1639 that this mission became a centre point for Jesuit missionaries throughout Midland in the region of what is now Ontario, as they lived and worked among the Huron people in the area.

When 18 men came to Canada from Europe in 1639, they set up this mission as a residence for the Jesuits, including a cookhouse, areas to sleep and a smithy. The site was burned in 1649 by the Jesuits living there, as they would rather have seen it destroyed than taken over by the Iroquois. In 1930 eight missionaries were martyred and canonized by the Roman Catholic Church.
