Lac du Bonnet Heritage Walking Tour

Lac du Bonnet is a community rich in history dating back to the De La Verendrye era. La Verendrye, having surveyed the topography of the area, decided that the lake (actually a river) reminded him of a bonnet. Appropriately, he named the area Lac du Bonnet. In tribute to the great explorations and tireless efforts of La Verendrye, the La Verendrye Monument was unveiled at Fort Alexander at the mouth of the Winnipeg River.
