Sudbury Ontario Nearby Towns and Attractions: Mindemoya
This town began playing the role of commercial centre for the western Manitoulin Island over 100 years ago. In the late 1800s the town became home to one of the Islandís few creameries, which is known today as Farquharís Dairy. The namesake Lake Mindemoya is the Islandís third biggest lake provides many recreational opportunities. There is a cave overlooking the lakeís western shore that was discovered in 1888, when three missionaries discovered a number of skeletons, believed to be Huron or Odawa people massacred centuries ago, likely by the Iroquois (the cave lies on private property).
