This monument on the grounds of the St-Pierre-Jolys Museum commemorates the Crow Wing Trail, a segment of which ran nearby, connecting the Red River Settlement (now Winnipeg) to St. Paul, Minnesota. In 1844, additional segments were opened by Peter Garrioch. Referred to locally as “Chemin Saint-Paul” or “La Route de L’Aile de Corbeau”, the Crow Wing Trail played an important role in the development of Saint-Pierre-Jolys and the surrounding district.
