Historic Sites of Manitoba: La Verendrye’s Trail Monument (Municipality of Pembina)

Having left Fort La Reine on 15 October 1733, the explorer La Verendrye, with his sons Francois and Louis-Joseph, crossed this region on his way to the country of the Mandans whence by following the Missouri he hoped to reach the western sea. This monument, situated in the Municipality of Pembina, was erected in 1946 by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada.
