Sault Ste. Marie Canal talks about the canal system from Lake Huron to Lake Superior that started to operate in 1895. Disability access is limited due to site area. Display signs talk about the history of the canal and VC with limited material about the site. Disability parking is limited. You will need about 1/2 hour to 1 hour to visit the site.
