Champlain’s Journey of 1613

On his first journey up the Ottawa River in search of the northern sea (Hudson Bay), Champlain stayed briefly at an Algonquin village near present-day Cobden. After learning that he had been misled as to the proximity of the illusive sea, Champlain proceeded down the Ottawa River from Lower Allumette Lake and returned to Quebec. (Ontario’s Historical Plaques)

The historical plaque is located in Cobden, behind the Visitor Centre in a park with a tall flagpole, on the north side of Highway 17.
