Site of French Fort Ste. Anne

 

Vermont's oldest settlement

 

On this shore was the site of Fort Ste. Anne built in 1666 by Capt. Pierre La Motte for the defense against the Mohawks.  The 

Jesuits celebrated the first Mass and erected the first Chapel.  Though not permanent, this stockade was Vermont's first white 

settlement.
