About North Bay

The city has been a resort area since the 19th century, with several well-known hotels and summer resorts in the vicinity. History [ edit ] The first European to visit this region was Étienne Brûlé in 1610, who passed through the Nipissing watershed near North Bay.[6] The French explorer Samuel de Champlain visited it again in 1615,[7] and he found that Algonquins had begun to settle there. In 1874 John Ferguson of the Geological Survey of Canada explored Lake Nipissing and gave its present name.[8][9] A settlement developed around Fort Henry (built by soldiers from nearby Fort William during Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee year), as seasonal tourism became popular with residents of Toronto[10][11]. The North Bay Railway reached here in 1904; after World War II roads improved so much that most tourists now arrive by car or bus rather than train.
