Candlemas Massacre Memorial

Named for the day, not the victims. At least 40 settlers were killed by Indians under French command, and then more captive survivors perished on a forced mid-winter march to Canada.

Massacre memorial.

Candlemas Massacre Memorial

This massacre was something big. I had never heard of it, and this memorial is a great homage to those who were killed. The upright white stone is about halfway down the cemetery on your left, close to the stone wall.

While there, take a look around. There are some very old and unique tombstones and monuments within this cemetery.
