Trading post, Indigenous burial site, Irish heritage
Most of my work is to enjoy and preserve Indigenous and local history, and to protect the natural and cultural heritage and beauty of Sheenboro.
For Joan McCann, a historian specialized in First Nations land claims and member of the Old Fort William Cottagers’ Association for over 25 years, Sheenboro is full of places that are rich in history. Thankfully, there are residents who are as passionate and invested as she is and who can ensure that this unique history can be recounted for generations to come. One of the must-see historical attractions continues to be Fort William, where Hotel Pontiac is now located.
