La Verendrye National Historic Park

La Verendrye National Historic ParkThe idea of building the LaVerendrye National Historic Park was because LaVerendrye was actually the first Canadian to traverse and explore this part of Manitoba. It was established that they passed within a mile of the present site of Darlingford in 1738. This party of fifty men consisted of soldiers, voyageurs, traders, Canadian trappers, and native Indians, who knew the country well.
