    A Seventeenth Century Overnight

    Ever think of sleeping in a Huron/Wendat longhouse? How about inside a seventeenth century French building? Here is your chance! In 2019, at the Annual Meeting at Sainte-Marie among the Hurons in Ontario, Canada, we are offering ALHFAM conference attendees the opportunity to spend a rustic evening/overnight with us on our historical site. If you can bring a sleeping bag, please do. If not, we have plenty of bedding to choose from. We have a store of woolen blankets to make you feel perfectly at home in the seventeenth century. 

    For $80.00 CAD, you can join us for an evening of fun, history and maybe the odd spooky story. Dinner and breakfast will be included in the cost. We also have a modern but rustic building available for those that may want to forgo seventeenth century accommodations. The limit is 25 people for this special evening.

    Contact conference chair Del Taylor at del.taylor@ontario.ca for more information or to express interest.
