Kaministiquia Or Kaministikwia Fort
At mouth of river of same name,
north-west shore of Lake Superior. Built by Zacharie Robutel de La Nouee,
in 1717. La Verendrye wintered there in 1731, while making preparations
for his western explorations. The site abandoned in favour of Grand
Portage, which became for many years, under both French and British
rule, the jumping-off place for the western fur country. Fort William
was afterwards built on or near the site of the old French fort.
