Jean-Baptiste Lainé Site

The Jean-Baptiste Lainé Site was home to a remarkable late-16th-century ancestral Wendat community. Of all sites in Southern Ontario that have been almost completely excavated, it is considered one of the largest and most complex. Explore and learn about this amazing archaeological site with self-guided tours and a staffed interpretation table.

Come and join a self-guided tour through the beautiful trails of the site that once housed a 16th-century Huron-Wendat village. Enhance your visit with a stop at the touch-and-see display station, where you can chat with museum staff and volunteers. And learn more about the site through the popular new exhibit at the Whitchurch-Stouffville Museum & Community Centre: Archaeology Alive!
