Huron and Jesuit

a Huron native and Jesuit priest with Sainte Marie Among the Hurons as it would have looked in 1640
Sainte Marie Among the Hurons was a Jesuit settlement, the first European one in Ontario

The mural was painted by Fred Lenz and is the largest outdoor historical mural in North America.

Just for fun, here is the world's largest duck (61 feet) near the largest mural (80x250 feet)

Looks like I need a day trip to Midland soon! I saw the duck here in Toronto.

I heard the duck was coming to Toronto (and area). Wish I was there to see it. Amazing mural!

I don't know why but I have always enjoyed learning about Sainte Marie Among the Hurons.

Can't imagine it was a good outcome for the Huron. The giant rubber ducky just made me laugh. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
