Samuel Champlain was a French explorer who came to this part of the country in 1615.

He spent the winter and made friends with the Indians.

This is a commemorative monument in our beautiful Couchiching Park at the waterfront in Orillia. Captain James wanted to sit with each of the statues and couldn’t make up his mind which one he like the best!
