AAA Editor Notes

Moose Factory Island is in the Moose River. Since 1673, when the Hudson's Bay Co. established a post, this area has been an important rendezvous point for fur traders. The English and the French engaged in bloody battles over the strategic post 1688-1730, when it was finally restored to the British. The contrasts between the present-day community and a once-rugged frontier settlement remain.
