The Barques "Iroquoise" and "Outaouaise" the last french ships of war that navigated Lake Ontario, were built on this point, then called Pointe au Baril.
On 17th August, 1760, the Outaouaise commanded by Captain La Broquerie, was taken after a gallant fight by five British row-galleys, under Colonel George Williamson.
