Iroquois Falls

 

Iroquois Falls, also known as “The Garden Town of the North”, is located in Northern Ontario, 70 km from Timmins.

 

First Nations, including the Mississauga, Anishinaabek, Algonquin, Iroquois and Ojibway, dating back over 10,000 years, attracted by its abundant natural resources and extensive water routes inhabited the area as hunter gatherers.

 

In the late 1600’s Europeans arrived and began to trade with the First Nations.

 

The town was constructed in 1913 by Frank Harris Anson, owner of the Abitibi Power and Paper Company. Influenced by the garden city movement of urban planning, Anson hired a Chicago architectural firm to design the town around the idea of proportionate areas of residences, industry, and agriculture.

 

The Abitibi Trestle Bridge over the Abitibi River, featured in this design, was originally built in 1922. Due to structural concerns the bridge was closed in 2014, but later in 2016 reopened as a single-lane toll bridge.

 

If you visit in the summer plan to enjoy one of the town’s music festivals; The Porquis Blues and Rock Festival and Iroquois Falls Heritage Music Festival .
