Wallaceburg is located at the banks of the Sydengam River which ends in the St. Clair River that connects Lake Huron with Lake Erie. It has a population of approximately 12 000. We have visited friends in Wallaceburg several times. They gave us a great sightseeing tour and we also explored Walpole Island.
Again before we could use all the information a nd pictures our computer was stolen. All our backups were on a second hard drive. I never will do that again! We can only use older pictures and information until we come back.
Unfortunately, we do not own a boat - Wallaceburg seems to be a paradise for boating because it allows access to the Great Lakes.
We loved little Wallaceburg. Only the closing of many plants was depressing. But we were not looking for jobs, we were on brief vacations at friends.
We want to revisit the "Wallaceburg & District Museum", which I consider to be a must if you are interested in history. Just search for the original web site to get an impression.
As an European I am always interested to learn something about the aboriginal people. That was mainly the reason for our visit of Walpole Island. I lost all own pictures because of the break in.
I was told that about 3000 Objibwa, Pattawatomie and Odawa are living in this reservation. The original name of the reservation is "Bkejwanong", what means "where the waters divides".
Many of the natives still live from fishing and hunting or they work as tourist guides. I will ask again!
I believe that the marsh is their hunting ground and the destination of tours for bird watchers and naturalists.
If possible, Elizabeth, my wife, will participate on such a tour to take pictures. She is an excellent reporter and her walking is much better than mine.
