Description:
PLEASE, NO invitations or self promotions, THEY WILL BE DELETED. My photos are FREE to use, just give me credit and it would be nice if you let me know, thanks. View of the courtyard from Sieur de Mons' Residence. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Jesuit Relations says that "as the spring was some little distance from there, they dug a well in the fort and found the water very good". originally built of field stones and mortared with sand, clay and crushed seashell, the well is 5.5 meters (18 ft) deep. The hand-made oak shingled cover, with windlass and bucket reflect 17th century Normandy design. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is a reconstruction of the 17th century French compound. It was one of the earliest European settlements in North America. In 1603, King Henri IV of France granted Pierre Dugua, Sieur de Mons a fur trade monopoly for a large area in North America on the condition to establish colonies there. In 1604, Sieur de Mons led a settlement to Saint Croix Island in the Saint Croix River between Main and New Brunswick. A severe winter and lack of provisions led to the death of almost half the colonists. In the spring of 1605, accompanied by explorer Samuel de Champlain, de Mons undertook a voyage south to find a better location. On Champlain's recommendation, they settled the beautiful, sheltered harbour of Port Royal. It was here they started to build their new settlement.
