Introducing Midland & Penetanguishene
The small commercial center of Midland is the most interesting spot in the Huronia region. The Huron-Ouendat first settled in this area, and developed a confederacy to encourage cooperation amongst the neighboring Aboriginal peoples. Later, this alliance attracted French explorers, especially Jesuit missionaries. Much of Midland's fascinating history focuses on the bloody altercations between the Huron and the Christian stalwarts.
