Historical Paddle on the Madawaska: When Rivers Were Highways
39402B Combermere Rd, Combermere
Historical Paddle on the Madawaska: When Rivers Were HighwaysArcheological findings date human occupancy in the Madawaska Valley to about 10,000 years ago, following the recession of the last ice shield. The Madawaska River Watershed has long been utilized for trade and travel, fishing and trapping and gathering. In early settlement times, at a time when rivers were highways, Combermere, perfectly locationed on the Madawaska River, was the hub-hub of the ‘Boom’ of the Madawaska Valley, a central location for the settlers of the Madawaska, York and Little Mississippi Valleys…. where logs and raftsmen passed downstream to the Ottawa River, corundum and railway ties were tugged upstream to the railway line at Barry’s Bay, and supplies and people moved in all directions.
Madawaska River Rentals will be serving up some passion for local history, alongside On-Site Canoe and SUP Rentals and Outfitting, at the Bent Anchor Bar & Restaurant, Wednesday afternoons from 2pm until sunset.
We invite you to explore our river history from the perch of your canoe, tickle your imagination with a time not so long ago, but an era long since passed, “When Rivers Were Highways”….
Please call for info or to reserve your canoe as space is limited. 613 758 2165
