Near western end of Lake Superior, about twenty miles
south of Fort William. As in the case of so many other historic Canadian
places, it is impossible to say who was the first white man to stand
upon this famous centre of the fur trade. Radisson came this way in
1662; Du Lhut in 1678; Noyon in 1688; La Nouee in 1717; but there is no
evidence that any of the four were actually at Grand Portage. It is
first mentioned in a memoir by Pachot, 1722; and the earliest
authenticated visit to the spot is that of La Verendrye, 1731. From that
time it grew steadily in importance until finally abandoned, 1801, in
favour of Fort William. The name was applied both to the trading-post on
the shore of Lake Superior, and to the portage thence to the Pigeon
River. =Index=: (Mackenzie / Selkirk / Simpson era) Described, 13; the portage, 13; as it is to-day,
