The Penetanguishene Angels

Portals to Huronia | Designated in 1985

Declared as the “Portals to Huronia “ in the 1921 Tercentenary celebrations, the Angels mark both the entrance to our Town and a welcome to all visitors. They were erected through the efforts of Father Athol Murray, parish priest at that time, and the family of Gerald Lahaie, to celebrate his entrance into the Jesuit order. The Angels have become asymbol for Penetanguishene’s dual heritage and an appropriate historical message to allvisitors to our Town. These Angels are replicas of the originals currently housed at the Centennial Museum.

Constructed in 1921
