Area information
Kenora, originally named Rat Portage, is a small city situated on the Lake of the Woods 50 km east of the Manitoba border.
Gold and the railway were both important in the community's early history: gold was first discovered in the area in 1850, and by 1893, 20 mines were operating within 24 km (15 mi) of Rat Portage, and the first Canadian ocean-to-ocean train passed through in 1886 on the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Prohibation. During the Prohibition era in the United States, the Lake of the Woods served as a smuggler's route for the transport of alcohol.
Stanley Cup and Art Ross Trophy. The Stanley Cup was won by the Kenra Thistles hockey team in 1907. The team featured such Hall of Famers as Billy McGimsie, Tommy Phillips, Roxy Beaudro, and Art Ross, for whom the Art Ross Trophy is named. Kenora is the smallest town to have won a major North American sports title. Wikipedia
