The Community and Journey to Fenelon Falls
Access video with descriptive transcription
Hardships aside, Anne’s faith was strong and unrelenting. Taken from her Church of England traditions, the early church services were held in her kitchen – attended by neighbours and family. Many times in her memoirs, Anne mentions her faith and commitment to a life dedicated to family and to the Lord.
Many days were spent making the trek from Blythe Farm to “The Falls” as she called Fenelon. Sometimes she made the trip by canoe, but in the winter she followed a wooded trail by snowshoe. On one occasion she mentioned following the footprints of wolves. She was very brave indeed!
