Champlain Restaurant

Ontario : Highway 69
Location #2134

Creation Date: 11/9/2010

This building was originally located about 1 mile west at the CP rail line just north of the French River. When it was built, there was a gap in Highway 69 at the French River and most tourists came to the region on the train. It was moved to the present location in the early 1960's. During the move, apparently a bet was made with the moving company that it could be done without breaking glasses that were filled with water and left on the tables.

The restaurant inside itself had been updated about 10 years ago and was reputed to have a friendly staff.

The restaurant was demolished March 2009 while the older outdated motel was left standing.
