and Historical Walkway tell the history of St. Joseph through narrative and pictorial signage. The Park began with a request from St. André, known healer and founder of the famed Oratory of St. Joseph in Montreal. He requested that a statue honouring St. Joseph be placed in the Park. It was the early 1900's when he took a metal pipe and pounded it into the ground where the statue now stands. The statue was placed in the Park in 1972. In August of 2011, a statue of St. Andre was erected in the park depicting St. Andre's devotion to St. Joseph. A Provincial Plaque was also erected in St. Joseph Memorial Park honouring Narcisse Cantin (1870-1940). Narcisse had a dream to build a Great Lakes canal system, which included a canal that would have started at St. Joseph and linked Lake Huron and Lake Erie. Although this canal was never built, many others were and he has been referred to as the "Father of the St. Lawrence Seaway". We invite you to visit St. Joseph, the city that never was. Read the many fascinating stories in the park. Located on Hwy. #21 at Cty. Rd. #84.
