Ile A La Crosse
Lake and trading-post. The lake is on the upper
waters of the Churchill River, in about long. 108 deg. Its name is derived
from the Indian game of lacrosse, which was very popular there. The
first trading-post was built on a peninsula on the western side of the
lake by Thomas Frobisher in 1776. Other forts were built there later by
the North West Company and the Hudson's Bay Company, the lake being a
strategic point in the western fur trade.
